     6 \cos^2 x + \sin (2x) = 6 \cos^2 x + 2 \sin x \cos x = 2 \cos x ( 3 \cos x + \sin x )

    Now use the result of part (a) for  3 \cos x + \sin x

    question 1)a) how do u tackle the question
     \sin (3 \theta ) = \sin ( 2 \theta + \theta ) = \sin (2 \theta ) \cos ( \theta ) + \cos (2 \theta) \sin ( \theta )

    Write  \sin ( 2 \theta ) = 2 \sin \theta \cos \theta \ and \ \cos ( 2 \theta ) = 1 - 2 \sin^2 ( \theta )

    6)a)ii i did the first part now for the second part do i use the equation and rearrange so i sub the sin3X?

    Multiply both sides of the equation given in part (i) by  -2 , and you should be able to see what to do next.

     8 \sin^3 \theta -6 \sin \theta +1 = 0 \implies -2( -4 \sin^3 \theta +3 \sin \theta ) +1 = 0 \\ \implies -2 \sin ( 3 \theta ) +1 =0

    Does it make sense?
