You can do something with it surely.

It doesn't matter if what you try first isn't the best idea. You just have to try!

Edit: neg. lol.

Yes I have tried... but I cannot get the right answer, I just need someone to do the steps for me so I can have a go at some other ones...

Have you even simplified the part I have highlighted

If this were the case then you would be able to use the examples in your text or those that your teacher has given you

Expand the two brackets, that should cancel some terms, then you need to use the rule (same can apply for x terms btw, not just theta)

My teacher didb't really go into any of it and the examples are a lot easier than these questions, so I am stuck. Any help would be appreciated.

I have just realised these are 2 different questions

The one that I highlighted is very straightforward ... what have you tried

Then

And you should certainly know what

So far I have got 2 + 2sinx2+2cos2x
where do I go from there?

Since these only require you to

Multiply Brackets
Know that

Are you saying that you do not know what

Take out a factor of 2 and follow a similar process to what TenOfThem has done hint:

Why didn't you the and in in the first place?

And, as I have said

Do you know what
18. (Original post by TenOfThem)
Are you saying that you do not know what
it equals 1...
19. (Original post by SophieL1996)
it equals 1...
So what would 2 times it equal to?
