sin s = 3/5 : sin^2 s = 9/25: 1 - cos^2 s = 9/25: cos s = sqrt(1 - 9/25)

cos s = 4/5 positive because cos is positive in quad I

sin t = -12/13:sin^2 t = 144/169: 1 - cos^2 t = 144/169:

cos t = sqrt(1 - 144/169) = sqrt(25/169)

cos t = - 5/13 negative because cos is negative in 3rd Q

sin(s + t) = sin s cos t + cos s sin t

(3/5) (- 5/13) +(4/5)( -12/13)

sin(s + t) = -63/65

tan(s + t) = [ tan s + tan t] / [1 - tan s tan t]

For perspective u: cos u=-4/5; all of us understand that sin^2u+cos^2u=a million as a result,sin^2u=a million-(sixteen/25)=9/25; sin u=sqrt 9/25 =-3/5 ( damaging fee taken for third quadrant) For perspective v: sec^2v=a million+tan^2v; =a million+(a hundred and forty four/25) =169/25 sec v=sqrt 169/25=-13/5 (damaging in third quadrant) So cos v=-5/13 Now use those values in the formulation: sin(u+v)=siu cosv+cosu sinv
