hello, i was wondering if anyone could help me!
i am stuck on a particular question with my maths homework set over the holidays. can you help with this: simplify and express with no denominator
(1/sqrt(x) -sqrt(x))^2
(1 over square root of x - square root of x) all squared

i am also stuck on this one: 2cos^2x - 1 = 1-2sin^2 x

please help, i am rather confused :S

(a-b)^2 = a^2 + b^2 - 2ab
so, (1/sqrt(x) -sqrt(x))^2 = 1/x + x - 2*(1/x)*x = x + 1/x - 2

cos^2x = 1 - sin^2 x
so, 2cos^2x - 1 = 2(1-sin^2 x) - 1 = 2 - 2sin^2 x - 1 = 1 - 2sin^2 x
