# the original problem was: (sin x + cos x)^2 + (sin x - cos x)^2 = 2 steps too please I got 1 for (sin x + cos x)^2 but then what does (sin x - cos x)^2 become since it's minus

the original problem was:
(sin x + cos x)^2 + (sin x - cos x)^2 = 2

I got 1 for (sin x + cos x)^2

but then what does (sin x - cos x)^2 become since it's minus?

[sin(x)+cos(x)]^2=
[sin(x)]^2 +2*sin(x)*cos(x)+ cos(x)]^2

[sin(x)-cos(x)]^2=
[sin(x)]^2 -2*sin(x)*cos(x)+ cos(x)]^2
(a+b)^2=a^2+2*a*b+b^2

(a-b)^2=a^2-2*a*b+b^2

[sin(x)+cos(x)]^2=
[sin(x)]^2 +2*sin(x)*cos(x)+ [cos(x)]^2

[sin(x)-cos(x)]^2=
[sin(x)]^2 -2*sin(x)*cos(x)+ [cos(x)]^2

[sin(x)+cos (x)]^2+[sin(x)-cos (x)]^2=
[sin(x)]^2 +2*sin(x)*cos(x)+ [cos(x)]^2+
[sin(x)]^2 -2*sin(x)*cos(x)+ [cos(x)]^2=
+[cos(x)]^2+[cos(x)]^2+[sin(x)]^2+[cos(x)]^2=
2*[[sin(x)]^2+[cos(x)]^2]=2*1=2

Becouse: [sin(x)]^2+[cos(x)]^2=1

• #### log(square root of 1-x) - log(square root of x+2)=logx First I sqared both sides and got log 1-x -log x+2=log x squared then i performed the quotient property of logs and got log(1-x/x+2)=log x squared then I got 1-x =x squared (x-2) then I got X cubed
