need an aswer quich ok thiers two the find sin(2pi/3 pi/4) using sum and difference identites and then tan 5pi/12 using the same identites

You have a formula for
Sin(AB)
Use that on the first one.
Now on the second, recall that
5PI/12= 3PI/12 + 2PI/12=PI/4 +PI/6
You now can use the tan (A+B) formula, as you know the tan(PI/4) and tan(PI/6)

Hi I need some assistance on this problem find the exact value do not use a calculator cot[(5pi)/12] Here is my attempt RT = square root pi = 3.14... cot[(5pi)/12]={tan[(5pi)/12]}^1={tan[(2pi)/12(8pi)/12]}^1={tan[pi/6(2pi)/3]}^1={(tan[pi/6]tan[(2pi)/3])/(1+tan[pi/6]tan[(2pi)/3])}^1={((RT[3])/3+RT[3])/(1+((RT[3])/3)(RT3))}^1 …
