**drwls**, Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 7:55am0.6 cosč + 0.8 sinč = 0.9

Let sinx = 0.6; then

cosx = 0.8 and x = 36.87 degrees

sinx cosč + cosx sinč = 0.9

sin (x + č) = 0.9

x + č = 64.16 degrees or 115.84 degrees

alpha = č1 = 27.29 degrees

beta = č2 = 78.97

alpha + beta = 106.26 degrees

sin (alpha + beta) = 0.9600

that is amazingly clever.

**usha**, Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 10:21amthank you very much. can u solve the same by quadratic equation method

**drwls**, Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 11:24amyes, it can be done that way, but I'd rather leave that to you.

Write it as

6cosθ= 9 - 8 sinθ

Square both sides and the left side can be written 36(1 - sin^2 θ)

Then you have a quadratic in sin theta to solve. Have fun.
