we are given that cos theta+cos square theta=1, then find the value of sin theta+sin square theta?

Expert Answer:

Let's call the angle A than θ.
cosA + cos2A = 1
cosA + cos2A  -1 = 0
cosA = 1-  cos2
cosA = sin2A
The roots of this quadratic equation,
cosA = (-1±√5)/2 = sin2A
sinA = [(-1±√5)/2]1/2
Hence sinA + sin2A = (-1±√5)/2 + [(-1±√5)/2]1/2
