    sum-product/product-sum

    solve the following using sum-product/product-sum identities

    cos20+cos100+cos140=0

    sin19cos11+sin71sin11=\frac{1}{2}

    cos20cos40cos60cos180=\frac{1}{16}

    cos20cos40cos80=\frac{1}{8}

    Re: sum-product/product-sum

    In this case,

    Q1,
    cos20+cos100+cos140=0
    L.H.S
    = 2cos60cos40+cos140

    = cos40+cos140

    = 2cos90cos50

    = 0 (Since cos90=0)

    =R.H.S

    Q2,
    sin19cos11+sin71sin11=\frac{1}{2}
    L.H.S
    = \frac{2sin19cos11+2sin71sin11}{2}

    = \frac{sin30+sin8+cos60-cos82}{2}

    = \frac{\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{2}+sin(90-82)-cos82}{2}

    = \frac{1+cos82-cos82}{2}

    = \frac{1}{2}

    =R.H.S

    Q3,
    I think you mention cos180 or cos 80 I can't get any answer.

    Q4,
    cos20cos40cos80=\frac{1}{8}
    L.H.S
    = \frac{2cos20cos40cos80}{2}

    = \frac{(cos60+cos20)cos80}{2}

    = \frac{(\frac{1+2cos20}{2})cos80}{2}

    = \frac{\frac{cos80+cos100+cos60}{2}}{2}

    = \frac{\frac{cos(180-100)+cos100+cos60}{2}}{2}

    = \frac{\frac{-cos100+cos100+\frac{1}{2}}{2}}{2}

    = \frac{1}{8}

    =R.H.S

    Re: sum-product/product-sum

    \frac{2cos20cos40cos80}{2}

    Where did the 2 in the numerator and denominator come from???

    Re: sum-product/product-sum

    you want to multiply by 2 to numerator and denominator,This is a way to get your answer quickly.
