Solution
Problem 3 of 3
Find the exact value of:
(a) cos (11π/12)
(b) sec (11π/12)
Solution
cos (11π/12) = (2π/12 + 9π/12) *in order to solve this, you need to find the sums of 11&pi/12, which is π/6 and 3π/4
cos (11π/12) = (π/6 + 3π/4)
cos (11π/12) = cosαcosβ - sinαsinβ
cos (11π/12) = cos(π/6)cos(3π/4) - sin(π/6)sin(3π/4)
cos (11π/12) = (√3/2)(-√2/2) - (1/2)(√2/2)
cos (11π/12) = -√6/4 - √2/4
cos (11π/12) = (-√6 - √2)/4
since sec is the reciprocal of cosine. the answer is:
4/(-√6 - √2)
