# Double and half angle Identity

Please help me to solve this problem on how to proof if it is a double angle

\begin{align*} \cos 2 A &= 1-2\sin^2A\\ \sin 2 A &= 2\sin A\cos A\\ \tan 2A &=2\sin A\cos A\\ \end{align*}

do you know the formula of $\sin(A+B), \cos (A+B)$ ? –  Santosh Linkha Jan 10 '13 at 23:03
Do you have access to the angle sum identities? If so, start with an angle sum of an angle with itself. (e.g., $\cos(\alpha + \alpha)$. –  Todd Wilcox Jan 10 '13 at 23:04

It would help us help you if you answer the first two questions. –  amWhy Jan 10 '13 at 23:07

Exists two basic identities for sum of angles and they are $$\sin(A+B)=\sin A\cos B+\sin B\cos A$$ $$\cos(A+B)=\cos A\cos B-\sin A\sin B$$ if in these you put $A=B$ you get $$\sin(2A)=2\sin A\cos A$$ $$\cos(2A)=\cos^2 A-\sin^2 A$$ then you need to manipulate following identities $$\tan A=\frac{\sin A}{\cos A}$$ $${\sin^2 A}+{\cos^2 A}=1$$
