Let α = cos25 + cos210 + cos215 + cos225 + .............................+ cos2180

2α - 36  = ( 2cos25 - 1 )  + (2 cos210 - 1 )  + .............................+ (2cos2180-1)

2α - 36  = cos10 + cos20 + cos30 +....................................+ cos360

2α - 36  = ( cos10 + cos360 ) + ( cos20 +.cos350 ) ..................+ (cos180 + cos190)

2α - 36  =  ( 2 cos185 cos 175 ) + ( 2 cos185 cos165 ) + ..................+ ( 2 cos185 cos5 )

2α - 36  = 2 cos185 [ cos175 + cos165 + cos 155 + ........................+ cos15 + cos 5 ]

2α - 36  = 2 cos185 [ ( cos175 + cos 5 ) + ( cos165 + cos15) ..................... + ( cos95 + cos85) ]

2α - 36  = 2 cos185 [ ( 2 cos90 cos85 ) + ( 2 cos90 cos75 ) + .................... + ( 2 cos90 cos 5) ]

2α - 36  = 4 cos185 cos90 [ cos85  +  cos75  + .....................+ cos 5 ]

In above expression , in RHS , we get cos90 . Hence we have , 2α - 36  = 0  or  α = 18

Hence we get ,  α = cos25 + cos210 + cos215 + cos225 + .............................+ cos2180 = 18
