The working says it's possible to combine two of the hyerbolic sines together using an identity to get 4(2sinh3x.coshx) - 17sinh3x = 0 So sinh4x + sinh2x = 2sinh3x.coshx I can't see how to do this, the book doesn't show the steps. Can anyone show me how it's done and/or which identity to use?

The first one will help you (by using A = 4x and B = 2x). There are many more (not just ones listed below), corresponding to the various trigonometric function identities. sinh(A) + sinh(B) ≡ 2sinh((A + B)/2)cosh((A - B)/2) cosh(A) + cosh(B) ≡ 2cosh((A + B)/2)cosh((A - B)/2) sinh (A + B) ≡ sinh(A)cosh(B) + cosh(A)sinh(B) sinh (A - B) ≡ sinh(A)cosh(B) - cosh(A)sinh(B) cosh (A + B) ≡ cosh(A)cosh(B) + sinh(A)sinh(B) cosh (A - B) ≡ cosh(A)cosh(B) - sinh(A)sinh(B) Thanks from wirewolf Tags equation, hyperbolic, hyperebolic, solve solve hyperbolic equation
