Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use the calculator to find their actual values and do normal addition... that's if u want to do some work... if not, u may use the calculator to find the whole answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmn quite hard if calculator is not allowed.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0earlier i thought it was sin(A+B)sin(AB) sort of question but it's not, direct solution with the calculator is the way forward :) unless u know those values off the top of ur head xD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let me try again to find out the answer through the formula of sina + sinb

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2OK so if I remember the values of : cos 36 degrees and sin 18 degrees then I am getting cos 7 degrees.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2cos Here is it how I did that : \[\large{\sin 47 + \sin 61 = 2 \sin 54 \cos 7 }\] ^that theta(s) are in degrees. similarly : \[\large{(\sin 11 + \sin 25) = ( 2\sin 18 \cos 7)}\] from the above we get : \(2\cos 7 ( \sin 54  \sin 18 )\) \(2\cos 7 ( 2\cos 36 \sin 18)\) \(4\cos 7 (\frac{\sqrt{5}+1}{4} \times \frac{\sqrt{5}1}{4})\) \(\cos 7\) That is it! Is it correct? @sasogeek @Yahoo!
