    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

    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.
