Prove
sec 2A + tan 2A = (cos A + sin A)/ (cos A - sin A)

Express this as a sum of 2 trigo functions
2(siny)(sin5y)

Prove
(sin2A)^2 - (sinA)^2 = (sinA)(sin3A)

Prove
1) sec 2A + tan 2A = (cos A + sin A)/ (cos A - sin A)

2) Express this as a sum of 2 trigo functions= 2(siny)(sin5y)

3)Prove (sin2A)^2 - (sinA)^2 = (sinA)(sin3A)

Solution:

1) Taking the left hand side first we get,
LHS => sec2A + tan2A =
Taking LCD as 'cos2A', we get:

------- ïƒ (1)

Taking right hand side

and ...

#### Solution Summary
