Are these used in AP Calc AB?

<p>In precalc I we learned sum and difference formulas, and double angle- product sum formulas. I found these formulas hard, and I have never had trouble with math before. Are these topics used in Calc AB? Should I memorize these formulas and get better? Or don't bother? Someone told me that in Calc AB you just need to know your identities and not the formulas. Is that true?</p>

<p>Yeah, it’s true. All you really need to know are the basic identities and the unit circle.</p>
