In trigonometry, there are four popular double angle trigonometric identities and they are used as formulae in theorems and in solving the problems. So, let’s learn each double angle identity with mathematical proof.

The sine of double angle is equal to two times the product of sine and cosine of angle.

$\sin{2\theta} \,=\, 2\sin{\theta}\cos{\theta}$

The cosine of double angle is equal to the subtraction of square of sine from square of cosine of angle.

$\cos{2\theta} \,=\, \cos^2{\theta}-\sin^2{\theta}$

$\tan{2\theta} \,=\, \dfrac{2\tan{\theta}}{1-\tan^2{\theta}}$

$\cot{2\theta} \,=\, \dfrac{\cot^2{\theta}-1}{2\cot{\theta}}$
