    @IloveCharlie what's 30' in degrees?

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

    yeah, it's right but could you use calculator for this? @IloveCharlie

    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 \[\Large \cos(x) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \cos(2x) + 1 }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \cos(2*67.5) + 1 }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \cos(135) + 1 }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ -\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2} + 1 }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ -\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2} + \frac{2}{2} }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \frac{-\sqrt{2}+2}{2} }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{ \frac{2-\sqrt{2}}{2} }{2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \left( \frac{2-\sqrt{2}}{2} \right)\left(\frac{1}{2}\right) }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{(2-\sqrt{2})*1}{2*2} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \sqrt{ \frac{2-\sqrt{2}}{4} }\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \frac{\sqrt{2-\sqrt{2}}}{\sqrt{4}}\] \[\Large \cos(67.5) = \frac{\sqrt{2-\sqrt{2}}}{2}\]
