1)
Use an Addition or Subtraction Formula to write the expression as a trigonometric function of one number.

cos 12° cos 18° − sin 12° sin 18°

And Find its exact value.

1. 1) that would be cos(12°+18°) which I'm sure you know

2) sin(4π/5-7π/5)

3)
well,

tan/cos = sin/cos^2 and sec = 1/cos

3. they are expressions. You surely know the exact value of cos(30°)

as for sin(-3π/5) you would have to construct a pentagon and figure out some side lengths. figure out sin 36° and then sin 72° and then the sine of 108°.
