1, obtain an expression for sin3A in terms of sin A
2, obtain an expression for cos3A in terms of cos A
pg 70-71 (Heinemann Pure Mathematics 2 Ex 4C)

how do I do that?

use sin3A=sin(A+2A) and cos3A=cos(A+2A).Do u know what to do next?

yes thats what i did
for sin
sinAcos2A + cosAsin2A
sinA(1-2sin^2A) + sin2AcosA
but i dunno how to get rid of cosA and end up with a cubic function

well sin2A=2sinAcosA so cosAsin2A=2cos²AsinA
