Sin(45-x)=cos(45+x) How to prove this identity? 

Can someone walk me through simplifying sec(?)?^2 * cot(?) * cos(?) =

  I thought it'd be  (1 / cos(θ)2) * (1 / tan(θ)) * (cos(θ) / 1)   Which would get you cos(θ) / cos(θ)2 * tan(θ)   And then coming out to 1 / cos(θ) * tan(θ)   but that doesn't make sense... more

1/8sin29.5cos29.5

I know that i should multiply something to it for it to become 2sinAcosA for me to be able to solve it. Unfortunately, if i multiply2/2 to it will just become 2/16 that will just bounce back to 1/8... more

Verify/prove: (1-cos^2x)(1+cos^2x) = 2sin^2x-sin^4x

I chose to manipulate the left hand side. So i got 1+cos2x-cos2x-cos4x when i simplify it will be 1-cos4x i will break it into pieces so (1-cos2x)(1+cos2x) i can change the first term to sin so... more
