    First get sin x which is 1/9. Then by soh cah toa you know opposite is 1 and hypotenuse is 9. That makes adjacent be √80 by Pythagorean, and since you'd have to be in quadrant 2 (sin is positive but tan is negative) you know cos x = -√80 / 9

    sin 2x = 2 sin x cos x so just plug those in

    cos 2x = cos^2 x - sin^2 x so plug in again'

    then tan 2x = sin 2x / cos 2x

    Do the other like that.
