    0.80902-0.30902=0.5 or 1/2

    Use cofunction identity.

    Idk if this helps, but Sin(3theta)=3Sin(theta)-4(Sin(theta))^3 I tried using it and I got - 4 sin³ 18 + 2 sin 18 - 1/2 = 0

    Use this identity: \[\sin A-\sin B=2 \cos{\frac{A+B}{2}}\sin{\frac{A-B}{2}}\]

    thanks i got it now it should be like this 2cos(36)sin(18) and multiply by cos18/cos18 as it equals 1 so cos(36)sin(36)/cos(18) and then multiply by 2 and 1/2 so 1/2sin72/cos18 then use co function so sin72= cos18 1/2cos(18)/cos(18) cosines cancel each other so = 1/2
