Cos^2 x = 1 - sin^2 x

sin2 x = (1/2)(1 - cos 2x) cos2 x = (1/2)(1 + cos 2x) Multiplying both you get (1/4) (1 - cos2 2x) Which is equal to (1/4) (1 - (1/2) (1 + cos 4x) = (1/8) (2 - 1 - cos 4x) = (1/8) (1 - cos 4x) Or If it is the trigonomic function, sin squared x and cosine squared x is equal to one

Note that an angle should always be specified - for example, 1 - cos square x. Due to the Pythagorean formula, this can be simplified as sin square x. Note that sin square x is a shortcut of (sin x) squared.

It is cos2x that is, "cos-squared x".

2 x cosine squared x -1 which also equals cos (2x)

The deriviative of sin2 x + cos2 x is 2 cos x - 2 sin x

Cos^2 x = 1 - sin^2 x

No, (sinx)^2 + (cosx)^2=1 is though

(1+cosx)(1-cosx)= 1 +cosx - cosx -cos^2x (where ^2 means squared) = 1-cos^2x = sin^2x (sin squared x)

1. Anything divided by itself always equals 1.

(1+cosx)(1-cosx)= 1 +cosx - cosx -cos^2x (where ^2 means squared) = 1-cos^2x = sin^2x (sin squared x)
