### Re: Trigonometry

Hi bobbym; I realize from experimentation that your answer T#76 is absolutely right. But I'm not able to simplify and get your answer. May I know the approach you used to arrive at your response? Or anyone else can help? Many thanks.

### Re: Trigonometry

Dear ganesh, there is an error in the numbering of questions here, from page 6 to this 7. It begins from T#54 to 55 to 56 which you mistook for 65 and 66. Could you please check that? Thank you.

### Re: Trigonometry

Hi;

I suggest you look at zetafunc's approach. Mine, if I can remember that far back was done using series methods. This might be confusing to you now, so just know that the way you can test an answer with experimentation, you can also get one in that way.

Hi;
Thanks bobbym and zetafunc although I do not entirely understand that.

You're welcome ganesh. Now, will we leave them as they are or a little editing will do?
