Homework Statement
prove that sin^4theta + cos^4 theta =1/4 (3+cos4theta).hence,find the greatest and least value of sin^4theta + cos^4 theta.
please give hints to start . no idea at all...i start from the RHS and get 2cos^4 theta - 2 cos^2 theta +1 , then how sin^4theta + cos^4 theta...
Homework Statement
Substituition y=vx , differential equation x2dy/dx = y2-2x2 can be show in the form x dv/dx = (v-2)(v+1)
Hence , solve the differential equation x dv/dx = (v-2)(v+1) ,expressing answer in the form of y as a function of x in the case where y > 2x > 0 .
