    You mean double angle formula ?
    I really don't think so.

    but factor formulae proof may come up
    omg can the proof for the addition formula be asked :P dont get all the triangle-arc nonense in the book :P

    Guys when it comes to the quotient rule and say v = (x+3)^6

    What would v^2 be? What's the rule for doing a power of a power? Thanks
    It would be (x+3)^12. You simply multiply the powers together

    Guys no way will they ask you to find proof of addition formula (I think anyway)

    If you lot are interested ....

    Can differentiate cot(x) ... by making it equal to cos(x)/sin(x)

    How about if I make it equal [tan(x)]^-1
    and I differentiate that...

    Also how would I differentiate cosec and sec ??

    Thanks in advance

    x= 2tan(y+pi/2)

    dx/dy = 2sec^2(pi/3)

    dx/dy = 8

    dy/dx = 1/8

    you want the normal... so negative reciprocal ... -8

    You can write them as 1/sine and 1/cos and use the quotent rule or however you spell it

    They're also in the formula booklet.

    Good luck all.

    stupid me, I didnt see it was dx/dy and I remember making that mistake last time
    I see thank you!!! haha must drum this into my head to check
