Answer

$\sin$ 35$^{\circ}$$\cos$ 55$^{\circ}$ + $\cos$ 35$^{\circ}$$\sin$ 55$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 0.99999998 or $\sin$ 35$^{\circ}$$\cos$ 55$^{\circ}$ + $\cos$ 35$^{\circ}$$\sin$ 55$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 1

Work Step by Step

$\sin$ 35$^{\circ}$$\cos$ 55$^{\circ}$ + $\cos$ 35$^{\circ}$$\sin$ 55$^{\circ}$ Evaluate each piece: $\sin$ 35$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 0.57357643 $\cos$ 55$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 0.57357643 $\cos$ 35$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 0.81915204 $\sin$ 55$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 0.81915204 Combine: $\sin$ 35$^{\circ}$$\cos$ 55$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 0.32898992 $\cos$ 35$^{\circ}$$\sin$ 55$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 0.67101006 0.32898992 + 0.67101006 $\approx$ 0.99999998 Therefore: $\sin$ 35$^{\circ}$$\cos$ 55$^{\circ}$ + $\cos$ 35$^{\circ}$$\sin$ 55$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 0.99999998 or $\sin$ 35$^{\circ}$$\cos$ 55$^{\circ}$ + $\cos$ 35$^{\circ}$$\sin$ 55$^{\circ}$ $\approx$ 1
