Answer to Question #13549 in Trigonometry for Basu

Question #13549
Show that cos20°cos40°cos60°cos80°=1/16
Expert's answer
At first multiply the expression by sin20 and divide by sin20:

= sin20.cos20.cos40.cos60.cos80/sin20

Since sin20*cos20=1/2 (sin 0+sin40) we obtain

=sin40*cos40*cos60*cos80/{2 sin20}

Also sin40*cos40=1/2 sin80

so we get
=sin80*cos80*cos60/{4 sin20}

Again sin80*cos80=1/2 sin160

and finally
