    how to prove the sinA+sinB= 2sin(A+B)/2 cos(A-B)/2 ?

    Do i even need to know about these formulae???

    Easy way to work out domain and range?
    sketch the curve. See where f(x)/y is highest/lowest.

    Use general expansion of sin(x + y), noting that A = (A+B)/2 + (A-B)/2 and noting a similar expression for B

    Ha, I see, that must have been very confusing indeed. It is C4 stuff. Confusing if you've never seen it before but alright when you get the hang of it.





    Please post a link to the paper if possible

    For the first part of the question, find x and go from there.

    test

    I'm going to be honest here: I'm confused. Like, I have no clue XD

    EDIT: Wait...gimme a sec!!

    I can't see a typing error - part b is possible to answer. what have you tried?

    SeanFM I got e^y = x from y = lnx. Then subbing it into log2x I get log2(e^y)...

    See, you can do it, you just need to not give up.

    Yes i have, plus the mark scheme says sinX replaces 2sinXcosX (letting X=x/2), as well as cosX to 1-2sin^2X.
    But then i think i just figured it out, however isnt sinX= sinx(x/2)cos(x/2)? Name:  DSC_4137.jpg

    sin2x = 2sinxcosx

    Therefore,

    sinx = 2sin(x/2)cos(x/2)

    Allllmost.

    Remember that sin2y = 2sinycos, and you can just replace x by anything (eg in the case above, 2y = x.

    June 2015 questions 2b, draw the equation of asymptote for modulus of fx.
    If you take y=5 it cuts the graph, and graphs do not cut their asymptotes, can someone explain this please?

    :hmmmm2: it seems that they've applied the change of base formula.



    Where one of the terms is log to base e, otherwise known as ln.

    What question is this from? It's been said that it's not on the spec (which I believe), even though it's in the C2 textbook.

    question.
    if you change the angles inside the double angle identity. for sin(2A) which is 2sinAcosA. if its sin4A.is it 4sin2Acos2A?or 2sin2Acos2A

    It's always 2* if you're halving the angle, no matter what you're halving.

    It's from Solomon Paper D
