## cos35sin55 + cos55sin35

ok the answer 1 apparently because i went on hotmath.com and it explained it like this

cos35sin55 + cos55sin35

sin^2 55 + cos ^2 35 =1

ok i understand that

but cos35 and sin 55 are equal and so are cos55 and sin35

so i thought it would be like...1 + 1...i dont understand why that isn't correct.
