ahh where do you get this from?its probs really obvious
tan 2x = tan (x + x)

Then work from there.

tan(A+B) = (tanA+tanB)/(1-tanA*tanB) then let A=B=x

It is one of the double angle formulae.
you can get it if you use tan (A+B) = (tanA + tan B)/(1-(tanAtanB)

EDIT: Damn you all!!! You are all to quick!!!

No, I didn't realise this thread was only open to P2ers!

Hornblower - which are you most nervous about? I reckon P5 is probably the hardest

Hi!!!

Can someone please show me step by step how to prove that:

(cotx)^2 - (tanx)^2 = 4cot2xcosec2x

Thanks
4cot2xcosec2x=4cos2x/(sin^2(2x))
=4(cos^2x-sin^2x)/(4sin^2xcos^2x)
=4cos^2x/4sin^2xcos^2x-4sin^2x/4sin^2xcos^2x
=1/sin^2x-1/cos^2x [1=cos^2x+sin^2x]
=(sin^2x+cos^2x)/sin^2x-(sin^2x+cos^2x)/cos^2x
=1+cot^2x-tan^2x-1
=cot^2x-tan^2



I assume people have already done it but just wanted to do it my self
