Divide 30 seconds by 60. After that, add it to 67. Then take the cosine of it all.

Yes it's a lot, but it at least gives you the exact answer 67 degrees 30' = 67 degrees + 30/60 = 67+0.5 = 67.5 degress Notice how 2*67.5 = 135 and \[\Large \cos(135) = \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}\] (using the unit circle) Now turn to the identity \[\Large \cos(x) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \cos(2x) + 1 }{2} }\] If we let x = 67.5, then \[\Large \cos(x) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \cos(2x) + 1 }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \cos(2*67.5) + 1 }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \cos(135) + 1 }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2} + 1 }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2} + \frac{2}{2} }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \frac{\sqrt{2}+2}{2} }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \frac{2\sqrt{2}}{2} }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \left( \frac{2\sqrt{2}}{2} \right)\left(\frac{1}{2}\right) }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{(2\sqrt{2})*1}{2*2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{2\sqrt{2}}{4} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \frac{\sqrt{2\sqrt{2}}}{\sqrt{4}}\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \frac{\sqrt{2\sqrt{2}}}{2}\]
