    then use the formula : cos(A-B) = cosAcosB + sinAsinB

    45 and 30 are the special angles.. u have to remember the values of sin and cos for angles 30 and 45 degrees

    hmm.. what identity did u use ? it should be : cos 45cos30 +sin45cos30 do u know the exactly value of sin30 ? sin45 ? cos30 ? cos45 ?

    just put the values cos45 =1/root 2 and cos 30= root3/2

    sin 45=1/root ovr2 and sin 30=1/2...the multiply and add
