(Chapter 1: Review) 1.48 GROUP 4: POWER-REDUCING IDENTITIES (“PRIs”) (These are called the “Half-Angle Formulas” in some books.) Memorize: Then, sin 2 u = 1 ± cos 2 u () 2 or 1 2 ± 1 2 cos 2 u () tan 2 u = sin 2 u cos 2 u = 1 ± cos 2 u () 1 + cos 2 u () cos 2 u = 1 + cos 2 u () 2 or 1 2 + 1 2 cos 2 u () Actually, you just need to memorize one of the sin 2 u or cos 2 u identities and then switch the visible sign to get the other. Think: “sin” is “bad” or “negative”; this is a reminder that the minus sign belongs in the sin 2 u formula. Obtaining the Power-Reducing Identities from the Double-Angle Identities for
