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:

The eclipses from Algol (an eclipsing binary star) come further apart in time when the Earth is moving away from Algol and closer together in time when the Earth is moving towards Algol, thereby proving that the speed of light is variable and that Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is wrong.

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:
