You will be expected to be able to prove a trig. identity such as the examples below. In the videos I show you how to set out an identity and what to look for.
This is a tricky topic and one that I find students give in too quickly. Learn your identities and have patience.
Double angle identities
- sin 2A ≡ 2sin A cos A
cos 2A ≡ cos2A – sin2A
cos 2A ≡ 2cos2A – 1
cos 2A ≡ 1 – 2sin2A
tan 2A ≡ (2 tan A) / (1 – tan2A)
