If:
sin(3pi / 10) = (1 + squareroot 5) / 4
Find the exact value of cos(pi / 5)

This is the second part of a question. The first part mentioned something about sin(2pi / t) = cos t so I guess I have to somehow incorporate this identity. You don't have to solve it (although you could if you want to) but it would be great if you could provide me a starting point so I could work my way through. I was thinking that perhaps a unit circle diagram may help.
Thankyou very much. Of course, all help is appreciated. (happy)
