$\sin\frac{5\pi}{12}$ is the cofunction of $\cos\frac{\pi}{12}$.
$$\cos\frac{\pi}{12}$$ First, sine is the cofunction of cosine. Therefore, we now need to find the complementary angle $\theta$ for sine, which satisfies $$\sin\theta=\cos\frac{\pi}{12}\hspace{1cm}(1)$$ According to Cofunction Identity: $\sin\theta=\cos(\frac{\pi}{2}-\theta)$ Apply this to the equation $(1)$: $$\cos(\frac{\pi}{2}-\theta)=\cos\frac{\pi}{12}$$ $$\frac{\pi}{2}-\theta=\frac{\pi}{12}$$ $$\theta=\frac{\pi}{2}-\frac{\pi}{12}=\frac{5\pi}{12}$$ Therefore $\sin\frac{5\pi}{12}$ is the answer.
