Trigonometric Functions of Multiples of Angles:

(A) to Express Sin 2A in Terms of Sin a, Cos a and Tan A

We know that

By putting , we get

can also be written as

Dividing numerator and denominator by , we get

(B) to Express Cos 2A in Terms of Sin a, Cos a and Tan A

We know that

Putting , we have

Also

i.e.,

Also

i.e.,

Dividing the numerator and denominator of R.H.S. by , we have

(C) to Express Tan 2A in Terms of Tan A

Thus we have derived the following formulae:

, ,
