Precalculus 37). Use trigonometric identities to solve problems.

a. Use the Pythagorean identity sin^2 (θ) + cos^2(θ) = 1 to derive the other forms of the identity.
Example: 1 + cot^2 (θ) = csc^2 (θ)

b. Use the angle sum formulas for sine, cosine, and tangent to derive the double angle formulas.

c. Use the Pythagorean and double angle identities to prove other simple identities.
