    cos(a-b)=cosa cosb + sina sin b you know? if ok cos (45-30)= cos45 cos 30 +sin 45 sin 30

    It is an unknown angle you have to make it bu known angle

    you know that formula? if yeah put the numbers in it you will have answer (a)

    I think I got it. Can you help with another?

    Also, you can use \(\cos^2\frac x 2=\frac{1+\cos x}2\).

    @klimenkov Can you help with this one, pelase? Write the expression as either the sine, cosine, or tangent of a single angle. \[\cos(\frac{ \pi }{ 5 }) \cos(\frac{ \pi }{ 7 }) + \sin (\frac{ \pi }{ 5}) \sin (\frac{ \pi }{ 7 })\]

    as "klimenkov " says you can use that formula shuch the way i draw|dw:1357846727839:dw|

    cos(π/5)cos(π/7)+sin(π/5)sin(π/7)=cos (π/5-π/7) by the formula AS i sayd before cos (a+b)= cos a cos b-sin a sin b

    so would the cos (a+b) be pi/5+pi/7?

    No. It will be \(\cos(\frac\pi5-\frac\pi7)\) as @amoodarya said. Hope you can do this subtraction.

    no i think that you get it cos (a+b)= cos a cos b-sin a sin b cos (a-b)= cos a cos b+sin a sin b but 2pi/35 is unknown angle

    \[\cos(\frac{ \pi }{ 5 }+\frac{ \pi }{ 7 })\] is 2pi/35? Can you show me how to fill in the formula? I think it'd make it easier for me.

    cos (a-b)= cos a cos b+sin a sin b a=pi/5 b=pi/7

    cos (pi/5-pi/7)= cos (pi/5) cos (pi/7)+sin (pi/5) sin (pi/7) ?

    So the answers 2pi/35?

    No. The answer is \(\cos(\frac{2\pi}{35})\).

    You said this without cosine.
