    Need help in Question 9.I applied the tan(2theta) identity and found cot(2theta) through it but I don't really get what to do next.
    Thanks in Advance!

    Find \tan(4\theta) in the same way since you know \tan(2\theta)

    Find  \tan 4\theta by using the identity which you have already used (pretty much)  \displaystyle \tan 4\theta =\frac{2\tan 2\theta }{1-\tan^ 2 2\theta } .

    You know, for example that \tan 4\theta = \frac{2\tan 2\theta}{1 - \tan^2 2\theta} and that \cot 2\theta = \frac{1}{\tan 2\theta}, so you can simplify \cot 2\theta \tan 4\theta nicely.

    Can you take it from here?

    Yup done. Thanks for your time
    It's 1-tan2 (2theta) btw.

    Thank you very much! Did you get any results as well - AS or GCSE?

    I ended up with A*A*A in M, FM and Physics respectively.

    Wow. Awesome!
    I did my A2 this year.Did Physics, Chemistry and Maths this year but I couldn't do well in some units such as C34, Physics 5,Physics 6 and Chemistry 5 (I'm an International Student so I'll be reappearing for C34 and Chemistry 5 in January.) Rest of the A2 Units I got A's except for a B in Physics 4 . I hate A Level Physics a lot lol.(Especially Edexcel, I did CIE for IGCSEs which was far better than this)

    Thank you so much.
    I'm trying for Australia and UK both actually. But Idk whether my grades will be acceptable for UK. UK is quite harsh in it's requirements than Australia. (Although the unis are superb!) You're going to Cambridge I see
