## Formula

The below equations use cosine double angle and half angle to reduce the power of squared trigonometric identities.

**sin ^{2}θ = [1 - cos(2θ) ]2 cos^{2}θ = [1 + cos(2θ) ]2 tan^{2}θ = [1 - cos(2θ) ][1 + cos(2θ) ]**

Power reduction formula calculator uses the power reducing formulas to rewrite the expression.

Power reducing identity calculator** **is an online trigonometric identity calculator that calculates the value for trigonometric quantities with powers. It proficiently reduces the power of **sin ^{2}θ, cos^{2}θ, **and

**tan**and converts them to double angle.

## What is power reducing?

Power reducing is the process of evaluating the squared value of the three basic trigonometric functions (sin, cos, tan) using a reducing power function.

The power reduction formulas are obtained by solving the second and third versions of the cosine double-angle and half-angle formulas. In power reduction formulas, a trigonometric function is raised to a power such as:

**Sin2α or cos 2 α **

## How to reduce power of trigonometric identities?

To reduce the power of squared trig identities, follow the below steps:

**Example:**

Find the value of *sin ^{2}*

*θ,*

*cos*^{2}**and**

*θ,***if the given angle is 30 degree.**

*tan*^{2}θ,**Solution:**

**Step 1: **Write down the angle.

*Θ = 30 *

**Step 2: **Place the angle value in the trig functions given above to calculate the value.
