(20) 1 - 2 sin^2 (22 1/2) = cos 2(22 1/2) = cos 45 = (1/2) sqrt(2)

(30) cos 3x = 4 cos^3 x - 3 cos x

(56) 8 sin 7x sin 9x = 4(2 sin 9x sin 7x) = 4 [cos 2x - cos 16x]

[Since 2 sin(C + D)/2 sin(C - D)/2 = cos (C - D) - cos (C + D)]

(58) cos 5x + cos 8x = 2 cos (13x/2) cos (3x/2) [Since cos (C + D) + cos (C - D) = 2 cos (C + D)/2 cos (C - D)/2]

(72) tan 195 = tan(180 + 15) = tan 15

tan 2x = 2 tan x / ...
