Most trig proofs involve converting 'tan' and 'cot' to 'sin' and 'cos', and lots of fractions!

hey i got ans for 4th ques

;):)

sinA-2sincubeA/2coscubeA-cosA

take sinA common in numerator and cos A in denominator

we get

sinA(1-2sinsquareA)/cosA(2cossquareA-1)

cos2A formula is 1-2sinsquareA and 2cossquareA-1

so they both will get cancelled

we get

sinA/cosA=tanA

hence proved. :P:P:

Hi Fla$h;

Problem #3 is not an identity.

It should read:

Now here is the proof for #3:

Now cross multiply:

Now substitute cos²(A) = 1- sin²(A) and clean up:
