Hi Janos,

There are ways to do that, One way is write sin 5x as sin(3x+2x), cos 5x as cos(3x+2x), then use the Sum and Difference formulas to expand them. After that we can use Double & Triple Angle formulas to simplify the terms.

This is just an idea, Edward have other ways to do it and as well as the sin(n)x formulas. I will post it soon.

Hope they will help.

Best regards,

Louis

: Is there a method to find an identity formula forcos(5x), or cos(nx) where n is greater than 2?
: I am thinking of something like the identity for cos(2x)
: Thanks!
