  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

  2. Thank you so much but are those the expressions or exact answers for the first two problems?

  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°.
