find the exact value of sin 11pi/12 using the sum or difference formula.

11/12 = 2/12 + 9/12 = 1/6 + 3/4
sin pi/6 = 1/2
cos pi/6 = (1/2) sqrt 3
sin 3 pi/4 = (1/2)sqrt 2
cos 3 pi/4 = (1/2) sqrt 2 
Some students feel more comfortable working with degrees.
sin(11π/12) = sin 165° = sin 15° by the CAST rule
sin15° = sin(45°30°)
= sin45°cos30°  cos45°sin30°
= (√2/2)(√3/2)  (√2/2)(1/2)
= (√6  √2)/4
sin 11π/12 = (√6√2)/4
