Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0 sin 11pi/6 = sin pi/6 = 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sin(11pi+pi/6)=1/2 so, sin(11/12)=....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now to find sin 11pi/12 we using the half angle formula sin 11pi/12 = sin pi/6  1 + cos pi/6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well I wouldn't say lost, I was here for this lecture and I don't know where these numbers are coming from.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hey.... sin(pi/12pi) =sin pi/12*cos pi  sin pi * cos pi/2 =.25882(1) 0 =.25882

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and above you are wondering how did .25882 come, its the value of sin(pi/12)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@arindameducationusc  you have a correct answer using the calculator but she wants an exact answer derived form known values like pi/6 = 1/2 and a trig identity. I got the wrong identity.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Remember your formulas. \(\sin(\alpha + \beta) = \sin(\alpha)\cdot \cos(\beta) + \cos(\alpha)\cdot \sin(\beta)\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So let's say... \(\dfrac{11\pi}{12} = \dfrac{2\pi}{3}\dfrac{\pi}{4}\) Can you go from there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's all a little plug and chug from there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes thats a good way to do it

welshfella

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0another way would be to use the identity sin^2 (11p/12) = [ 1  cos (11pi/6) ]/ 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh that's another way, didn't think of that one too quickly.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yea theres so many trig identities  I used to know them all when i was younger Memories a bit hazy now!!1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@welshfella sin15 can be derived easily....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sin(4530)... Using identity @welshfella I would have written it but she went offline
