Hint: Express everything in terms of sin and cos. Can you rearrange the result into a form that allows you to use some of the identities you've learned?

How to start? I know I have to use trigonometric identities but where?

Thanks a lot.

2sin2 + 178sin178 = 2sin2 + 178sin2 = 180sin2

...

88sin88 + 102sin102 = 180sin88

so, we have

180(sin0 + sin2 + sin4 + ... + sin88) + 90sin90

= 180(sin0+sin2+...+sin90) - 90

That makes the average

2(sin0+sin2+...+sin90)-1

Gotta think some more. Back later. See what you can figure out.
