Find the Value of Cos 15 Degrees ?

Solution :

The value of cos 15 degrees is \(\sqrt{3} + 1\over 2\sqrt{2}\).

Proof :

We will write cos 15 as cos (45 – 30).

By using formula cos (A – B) = cos A cos B + sin A sin B,

cos (45 – 30) = cos 45 cos 30 + sin 45 sin 30

\(\implies\) cos 15 = \(1\over \sqrt{2}\) \(\times\) \(\sqrt{3}\over 2\) + \(1\over \sqrt{2}\) \(\times\) \(1\over 2\)

\(\implies\) cos 15 = \(\sqrt{3} + 1\over 2\sqrt{2}\)
