## Technology

For the following exercises, algebraically determine whether each of the given equation is an identity. If it is not an identity, replace the right-hand side with an expression equivalent to the left side. Verify the results by graphing both expressions on a calculator.

$2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)\mathrm{sin}\left(3x\right)=\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x-\mathrm{cos}\left(5x\right)$

$\frac{\mathrm{cos}\left(10\theta \right)+\mathrm{cos}\left(6\theta \right)}{\mathrm{cos}\left(6\theta \right)-\mathrm{cos}\left(10\theta \right)}=\mathrm{cot}\left(2\theta \right)\mathrm{cot}\left(8\theta \right)$

It is an identity.

$\frac{\mathrm{sin}\left(3x\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(5x\right)}{\mathrm{cos}\left(3x\right)+\mathrm{cos}\left(5x\right)}=\mathrm{tan}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x$

$2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cos}\left(2x\right)\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x+\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x=2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x$

It is not an identity, but $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\mathrm{cos}}^{3}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ is.

$\frac{\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)+\mathrm{sin}\left(4x\right)}{\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(4x\right)}=-\mathrm{tan}\left(3x\right)\mathrm{cot}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x$

For the following exercises, simplify the expression to one term, then graph the original function and your simplified version to verify they are identical.

$\frac{\mathrm{sin}\left(9t\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(3t\right)}{\mathrm{cos}\left(9t\right)+\mathrm{cos}\left(3t\right)}$

$\mathrm{tan}\left(3t\right)$

$2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(8x\right)\mathrm{cos}\left(6x\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)$

$\frac{\mathrm{sin}\left(3x\right)-\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x}{\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x}$

$2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cos}\left(2x\right)$

$\frac{\mathrm{cos}\left(5x\right)+\mathrm{cos}\left(3x\right)}{\mathrm{sin}\left(5x\right)+\mathrm{sin}\left(3x\right)}$

$\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cos}\left(15x\right)-\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(15x\right)$

$-\mathrm{sin}\left(14x\right)$

## Extensions

For the following exercises, prove the following sum-to-product formulas.

$\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x-\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(\frac{x-y}{2}\right)\mathrm{cos}\left(\frac{x+y}{2}\right)$

$\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x+\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cos}\left(\frac{x+y}{2}\right)\mathrm{cos}\left(\frac{x-y}{2}\right)$

Start with $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x+\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y.\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ Make a substitution and let $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x=\alpha +\beta \text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and let $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=\alpha -\beta ,$ so $\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x+\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y$ becomes $\begin{array}{}\\ \mathrm{cos}\left(\alpha +\beta \right)+\mathrm{cos}\left(\alpha -\beta \right)=\mathrm{cos}\alpha \mathrm{cos}\beta -\mathrm{sin}\alpha \mathrm{sin}\beta +\mathrm{cos}\alpha \mathrm{cos}\beta +\mathrm{sin}\alpha \mathrm{sin}\beta =\\ 2\mathrm{cos}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\alpha \mathrm{cos}\phantom{\rule{0.2em}{0ex}}\beta \end{array}$

Since $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x=\alpha +\beta \text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ and $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y=\alpha -\beta ,$ we can solve for $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\alpha$ and $\beta$ in terms of x and y and substitute in for $2\mathrm{cos}\alpha \mathrm{cos}\beta$ and get $2\mathrm{cos}\left(\frac{x+y}{2}\right)\mathrm{cos}\left(\frac{x-y}{2}\right).$

For the following exercises, prove the identity.

$\frac{\mathrm{sin}\left(6x\right)+\mathrm{sin}\left(4x\right)}{\mathrm{sin}\left(6x\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(4x\right)}=\mathrm{tan}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(5x\right)\mathrm{cot}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x$

$\frac{\mathrm{cos}\left(3x\right)+\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x}{\mathrm{cos}\left(3x\right)-\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x}=-\mathrm{cot}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(2x\right)\mathrm{cot}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x$

$\frac{\mathrm{cos}\left(3x\right)+\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x}{\mathrm{cos}\left(3x\right)-\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x}=\frac{2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cos}\left(2x\right)\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x}{-2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x}=-\mathrm{cot}\left(2x\right)\mathrm{cot}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x$

$\frac{\mathrm{cos}\left(6y\right)+\mathrm{cos}\left(8y\right)}{\mathrm{sin}\left(6y\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(4y\right)}=\mathrm{cot}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(7y\right)\mathrm{sec}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\left(5y\right)$

$\frac{\mathrm{cos}\left(2y\right)-\mathrm{cos}\left(4y\right)}{\mathrm{sin}\left(2y\right)+\mathrm{sin}\left(4y\right)}=\mathrm{tan}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y$

$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill \frac{\mathrm{cos}\left(2y\right)-\mathrm{cos}\left(4y\right)}{\mathrm{sin}\left(2y\right)+\mathrm{sin}\left(4y\right)}& =& \frac{-2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(3y\right)\mathrm{sin}\left(-y\right)}{2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(3y\right)\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y}=\hfill \\ \hfill \frac{2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(3y\right)\mathrm{sin}\left(y\right)}{2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(3y\right)\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y}& =& \mathrm{tan}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}y\hfill \end{array}$

$\frac{\mathrm{sin}\left(10x\right)-\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)}{\mathrm{cos}\left(10x\right)+\mathrm{cos}\left(2x\right)}=\mathrm{tan}\left(4x\right)$

$\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x-\mathrm{cos}\left(3x\right)=4\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\mathrm{sin}}^{2}x\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x$

$\begin{array}{l}\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x-\mathrm{cos}\left(3x\right)=-2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)\mathrm{sin}\left(-x\right)=\\ 2\left(2\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\right)\mathrm{sin}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x=4\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\mathrm{sin}}^{2}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\mathrm{cos}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}x\end{array}$

${\left(\mathrm{cos}\left(2x\right)-\mathrm{cos}\left(4x\right)\right)}^{2}+{\left(\mathrm{sin}\left(4x\right)+\mathrm{sin}\left(2x\right)\right)}^{2}=4\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\mathrm{sin}}^{2}\left(3x\right)$

$\mathrm{tan}\left(\frac{\pi }{4}-t\right)=\frac{1-\mathrm{tan}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t}{1+\mathrm{tan}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}t}$

$\mathrm{tan}\left(\frac{\pi }{4}-t\right)=\frac{\mathrm{tan}\left(\frac{\pi }{4}\right)-\mathrm{tan}t}{1+\mathrm{tan}\left(\frac{\pi }{4}\right)\mathrm{tan}\left(t\right)}=\frac{1-\mathrm{tan}t}{1+\mathrm{tan}t}$
