I need some help with this exercicse:
sin2 (a + b) = cos2a + cos2b - 2cos(a)cos(b)cos(a + b)
I have to show that this is true.

So, you have this
sin2 (a + b) = cos2a + cos2b - 2cos(a)cos(b)cos(a + b)

We have to use this formula

formula cosinus, trigonometry

I'm gonna start with the member from the right. So though, we have:

trigonometry, cosinus de b sinus de a

cosinus, trigonometrie
And then we know the formula: sin2 a + cos2a = 1 => cos2 a = 1 - sin2a

and we have
trigonometry, sin angles summary





Here you can discuss about mathematic, about algebra, geometry, trigonometry.
