8. write cos(λ+ π/3) as a function of λ only.

16. Write cos(–83°) as a function of a positive angle.

23. Write sin(125°) in terms of its cofunction. Make sure your answer is a function of a positive angle.

31. Find the exact value of sin(195°).

tan (π/4-β) = (tanπ/4 - tanβ)/(1+tanπ/4 * tanβ) = (1-tanβ)/(1+tanβ)

8.

cos(λ+ π/3) = cosλ cosπ/3 - sinλ sinπ/3

= 1/2 cosλ - √3/2 sinλ

16.

Since cos(-x) = cos(x),

cos(-83°) = cos(83°)

23.

sin(x) = cos(90°-x), so

sin(125°) = cos(90°-125°) = cos(-35°) = cos(35°)

31.

sin(195°) = sin(180°+15°) = -sin(15°) = -sin(30°/2)

= -√((1-cos(30°))/2)

= -√(1-√3/2)/2)

= -√(2-√3) / 2 = -(√3-1) / 2√2
