sin(2x)/sin(3x) 2008-06-19
From matt:
how does sin2x break down (not with identities) and how would sin3x be created. My prob. is sin 2x/ sin 3x and I want to know how the double(or triple angle) would break down. I want to be able to cancel out sins. Thanks!

cos(2x) = sin(3x) 2005-04-14
From A student:
Show that if x= 18 degrees, then cos2x =sin 3x. HENCE find the exact value of sin 18 degrees, and prove that cos 36 - sin 18 =1/2.

sin(3A) 2004-10-20
From A student:
Express sin3A in terms of sinA and cosA.

Some trig expressions 2004-05-23
From A student:

sin A + sin B = 2sin(A+B/2)cos(A-B/2)

cos A - cos B = -2sin(A+B/2)sin(A-B/2)

cos A + cos B = 2cos(A+B/2)cos(A-B/2)

sin A - sin B = 2cos(A+B/2)sin(A+B/2)
