Hi there!

 

Your answers are as follows:

 

1)

 

cos (105) = cos (60 + 45)

 

= cos 60 cos 45 - sin 60 sin 45

 

= (1/2)(1/√2) - (√3/2)(1/√2)

 

= (1/(2√2))(1- √3)

 

= (√2/4)(1-√3)

 

2)

 

sin pi/6 cos 2pi/3 + cos pi/6 sin 2pi/3

 

= (1/2)(-1/2) + (√3/2)(√3/2)

 

= -1/4 + 3/4

 

= 1/2

 

3)

 

sin 10 cos 35 + cos 10 sin 35

 

= sin (10+35)

 

= sin 45

 

= √2/2

 

4)

 

(tan 25 + tan 5)/(1-tan 25 tan 5)

 

= tan (25 + 5)

 

= tan 30

 

= 1/√3

 

= √3/3

for number 1 they said the answer is √2/4 - √6/4 how did they get that

Hi,

 

You could further expand it out:

 

(√2/4)(1-√3) = √2/4 - (√2/4)(√3) = √2/4 - (√2√3)/4 = √2/4 - √6/4

 

Hope this helps. If you require further clarification do let me know. Otherwise, please do not forget to click 'Accept'. Thanks!
