    sin4feta=cos2feta

    how do you write the equation in 2feta?

    i have no idea how to write sin4feta as 2feta

    thankyouuu

    the fact that someone can get so far in education to be tackling such equations, yet think the character is spelt "feta", pretty much sums up how upset i am with maths education

    in answer to your question - do you know the expansion of sin(A+B) ? It's no different, just that in this case A = 2theta, and B also = 2theta

    i hate feta cheese.

    \sin4\theta=\cos2\theta

    The word is theta not feta

    no worries

    you maths teacher will rant on about learning the "DOUBLE ANGLE FORMULAE OMFG SERIOUS BUSINESS", i.e. making you learn that:

     sin\ 2 \theta = 2 sin \theta cos \theta

    and

     cos\ 2 \theta = cos^2 \theta - sin^2 \theta

    but it's kinda uncessary to memorise that specific case just for your exams - because you can always just work it out in a few seconds using the expansions for sin(A+B) and cos(A+B), which are given to you in the formula booklet.
