    Smile exact values

    what is the exact value of

    sin^2(pie/6) - 2sin(pie/6)cos(pie/6) + cos^2(-pie/6)

    a. 2- (squareroot)3
    b. (2- (squareroot)3)/2
    c. (2+ (squareroot)3/2
    d. 2+ (squareroot)3

    Please use LaTeX to enter math equations. You can learn how here:
    http://www.mathhelpforum.com/math-he...read.php?t=266

    You can also click on the equation that I wrote and see the code I used to generate it.

    The above would look like this:

     \sin^2(\frac{\Pi}{2}) - 2\sin(\frac{\Pi}{6}) + \cos^2(\frac{-\Pi}{6})

    a.  2 - \sqrt {3}

    b.  \frac {2 - \sqrt {3}}{2}

    c.  2 + \sqrt {3}

    LaTeX is also case sensitive. Therefore, big \Pi and small \pi mean and display differently.

    \left (\sin(\frac{\pi}{6})\right )^{2}-2\,\sin(\frac{\pi}{6})\cos(\frac{\pi}{6})+<br />
\left (\cos(\frac{\pi}{6})\right )^{2}
     = \left (\sin(\frac{\pi}{6})-\cos(\frac{\pi}{6})\right )^{2}
     = 1-\frac{1}{2}\,\sqrt {3}
