sinA = 8/17 = Y/r.

X^2 + Y^2 = r^2

X^2 + 8^2 = (17)^2

X^2 = (17)^2 - 8^2 = 225

X = 15.

cosA = X/r = 15/17.

cosB = 3/5 = X/r.

X^2 + Y^2 = r^2.

3^2 + Y^2 = 5^2

Y^2 = 5^2 - 3^2 = 16

Y = 4.

sinB = Y/r = 4/5.

1. cos(A+B) = cosA*cosB - sinA*sinB.

cos(A+B) = 15/17 * 3/5 - 8/17 * 4/5 =

45/85 - 32/85 = 13/85.

2. sin(A+B) = sinA*cosB + cosA*sinB.

The student can solve #2, and #3.
