Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so far i managed to write \[\cos \frac{ \pi }{ 7 }2\cos^2\frac{ \pi }{ 7 }+1+\cos \frac{ 2\pi }{ 7 }\cos \frac{ \pi }{ 7 }\sin \frac{ 2\pi }{ 7 }\sin \frac{ \pi }{ 7 }\] \[\cos \frac{ \pi }{ 7 }2\cos ^2\frac{ \pi }{ 7 }+1+2\cos^3\frac{ \pi }{ 7 }\cos \frac{ \pi }{ 7 }2\cos \frac{ \pi }{ 7 }+2\cos^3\frac{ \pi }{ 7 }\] \[4\cos^3\frac{ \pi }{ 7 }2\cos^2\frac{ \pi }{ 7 }2\cos\frac{\pi}{7}+1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cos(pi/7) cos(2pi/7)+ cos(3pi/7) cos(pi/7)+cos(3pi/7)+cos(5pi/7) {2sin(pi/7)cos(pi/7) + 2 sin(pi/7) cos(3pi/7) + 2 sin(pi/7) cos(5pi/7)}/2 sin(pi/7)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That is just a comment, which will enable me to receive notifications whenever it gets discussed * is just a symbol, yes, bookmark symbol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now, u need to use 2 sinA cosB = sin(A+B)  sin(AB)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry, The correct formula is 2 sinA cosB =sin(A+B) + sin(AB) =sin(A+B)  sin(BA)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0=cos(pi/7) cos(2pi/7)+ cos(3pi/7) =cos(pi/7)+cos(3pi/7)+cos(5pi/7) ={2sin(pi/7)cos(pi/7) + 2 sin(pi/7) cos(3pi/7) + 2 sin(pi/7) cos(5pi/7)}/2 sin(pi/7) ={sin(2pi/7) sin(0) +sin(4pi/7) sin(2pi/7) +sin(6pi/7) sin(4pi/7)}/2sin(pi/7) ={sin(6pi/7)}/2sin(pi/7) ={sin(pi/7)}/2sin(pi/7) =1/2
