We don't need the "squared identities," here...the double-angle identities serve better....

 

sin^2xcos^2x  = 

(sinx cosx)^2  =                                                                                

[  (1/2) sin 2x] ^2  =                                                         

 (1/4) (sin 2x)^2                       

 

Note, Cupcake.......     cos 4x  =   1 - 2[sin 2x]^2

                                    2[sin 2x ]^2  = 1 - cos(4x)

                                     (sin 2x)^2  =  [ 1 - cos(4x)] / 2   =  (1/2)[ 1 - cos (4x) ]

 

So we have

 

(1/4) (1/2)  (1 - cos(4x) ]    =

 

(1/8) [ 1 - cos (4x) ]  =

 

[ 1 - cos (4x) ]
