So your thing is equivalent to , simply that using the rule of indices, then move it back into trig. form.

Is it in the denominator though?

Probably should be, and then I'd agree with your working, but it's not showing as such in the initial post.

yes of course it is -isin4A in denominator ..but can u tell me how how simplify the trig identities in the exponential form like the way u did it?

Then I suggest you correct your original post.

You want to quote Zacken, not me.

That said:

etc.

It would have looked a little out of place if it wasn't in the denominator so I just assumed it was. But yeah, ambiguous on the OP's part.

@OP, for future reference, you may want to use brackets to make your equations clear. What you wrote could be mis-interpreted as , it would have been much clear had you written (cos A - i sin A)/(cos 4A - i sin 4A).

My issue was with the value, rather than it being in the denominator or not.

Original post was showing in the denominator.

And has now been corrected.

Ah, I didn't even notice that.
