    Could you be a bit more specific with your question? Patterns? What do you mean?

    Like they give you this:
    cos360=1
    cos360+cos180=0
    cos360+cos240+cos120=0
    cos360+cos270+cos180+cos90=0
    cos360+cos288+cos216+cos144+cos72=0

    What kind of patterns can you find in this and what kind of equation/s can you deduce from it. That kind of stuff…
