TRIG

posted by .

find:


sin 23pi/12


i got totally the wrong answer how do i approach this?

  • TRIG -

    That is pi/12 less than 2 pi (360 degrees), which would be 345 or -15 degrees. The sin of that angle is -0.2588

    If you don't want the decimal approximation, it is

    -sin(45 - 30) = -sin 45 cos 30 + sin 30 cos 45 = (sqrt 2)/2*[1/2 - (sqrt3)/2]
    = (sqrt2)/4 -(sqrt6)/4

  • TRIG -

    haha i got that too! but the right answer is

    (-root(2-root(3)))/2

  • TRIG -

    why don't you evaluate your "right" answer and compare it with drwls answer ?

    MMMhhh ??
