# If A = 60° and B = 30°, verify that:

(i) sin (A + B) = sin A cos B + cos A sin B

(ii) cos (A + B) = cos A cos B — sin A sin B

Answer :

(i) To verify: sin (A + B) = sin A cos B + cos A sin B

If A = 60° and B = 30°, then

To verify: sin 90° = sin 60° cos 30° + cos 60° sin 30°

Consider R.H.S. = sin 60° cos 30° + cos 60° sin 30°

= (√3/2) × (√3/2) + (1/2)(1/2)

= (3/4) + (1/4)

= 4/4

=1

Consider L.H.S. = sin 90° = 1

∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S.

Hence, verified.

(ii) To verify: cos (A + B) = cos A cos B — sin A sin B

If A = 60° and B = 30°, then

To verify: cos (90°) = cos 60° cos 30° — sin60° sin 30°

Consider R.H.S. = cos 60° cos 30° - sin 60° sin 30°

= (1/2) × (√3/2) - (√3/2)(1/2)

= (√3/4) - (√3/4)

= 0 = cos 90° = L.H.S.

∴ L.H.S. = R.H.S.

Hence, verified.
