**Reiny**, Sunday, November 13, 2011 at 3:58pmsometimes I find it easier to visualize these kind of angles in degrees

π/12 radians = 15°,

so -11π/12 = -165°

and 165 = 120+45

cos(-11π/12) = cos(-165° = cos(165°)

= cos(120 + 45)

= cos120cos45 - sin120sin45

= (-1/2)(1/√2) - (√3/2)(1/√2)

= (-1 - √3)/(2√2)

or

= (-√2 - √6)/4
