how to solve cos70/sin20+cos57cosec33-2cos60?

• maths -

Did you notice that in the first two terms the angles mentioned are complimentary angles?
And did you know that cos 70 = sin 20 ?

so....
cos70/sin20+cos57cosec33-2cos60
= cos70/sin20 + cos57/sin33 - 2cos60
= sin20/sin20 + cos57/cos57 - 2cos60
= 1+1 - 2(1/2)
= 1
