    Re: can you help me with this trignometery question

    To do this question exact values must be known, that is:

    sin(30) = cos(60) = \frac{1}{2}
    tan(60) = \sqrt(3)
    sin(45) = cos(45) = \frac{1}{\sqrt(2)}


    If you did not already know:

    tan(30) = \frac{1}{\sqrt(3)}
    sin(60) = cos(30) = \frac{\sqrt(3)}{2}
    tan(45) = 1



    Now, all that is needed is a substitution:

    4(\frac{1}{2})^4 + 4(\frac{1}{2})^4 - \frac{2}{3}[(\frac{1}{2})^2 - (\frac{1}{\sqrt(2)})^2] + \frac{1}{2}[\sqrt(3)]^2

    and then it should be easy to solve from there

    Re: can you help me with this trignometery question

    I can't give you ideas for solving other questions if I don't know what the questions are. Are you asking for the final answer to the question? I evaluated it to be 11/6, but I'm sure you could have done it as well

    You were told exactly how to do the question!

    It is insulting to post questions in order to 'test' us.
