    Seems like it won't help. Try this, using the formula sin (a + b) = cosa sinb + cosb sin a sin36º = 2 sin18º cos18º = 2 cos72º sin72º

    ok, i know that formula.. but i think we get the new problem... because sin/cos 18 or sin/cos 72 not eassy to get.. it's very difficul, right ?

    @experimentX I tried bt it is a bit complex. cos sin3x=sin108.

    this should be simpler ... sin(3x) = sin(2x)

    since this is just double angle and triple angle ... change everything back to sin ... and remove all roots and try to factorize it.
