The value of sin 5pi/12 is 0.9659258. . .. Sin 5pi/12 radians in degrees is written as sin ((5π/12) × 180°/π), i.e., sin (75°). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of sin 5pi/12 with examples.
 Sin 5pi/12: (√6 + √2)/4
 Sin 5pi/12 in decimal: 0.9659258. . .
 Sin (5pi/12): 0.9659258. . . or (√6 + √2)/4
 Sin 5pi/12 in degrees: sin (75°)
What is the Value of Sin 5pi/12?
The value of sin 5pi/12 in decimal is 0.965925826. . .. Sin 5pi/12 can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (5pi/12) in degrees (75°).
We know, using radian to degree conversion, θ in degrees = θ in radians × (180°/pi)
⇒ 5pi/12 radians = 5pi/12 × (180°/pi) = 75° or 75 degrees
∴ sin 5pi/12 = sin 5π/12 = sin(75°) = (√6 + √2)/4 or 0.9659258. . .
Explanation:
For sin 5pi/12, the angle 5pi/12 lies between 0 and pi/2 (First Quadrant). Since sine function is positive in the first quadrant, thus sin 5pi/12 value = (√6 + √2)/4 or 0.9659258. . .
Since the sine function is a periodic function, we can represent sin 5pi/12 as, sin 5pi/12 = sin(5pi/12 + n × 2pi), n ∈ Z.
⇒ sin 5pi/12 = sin 29pi/12 = sin 53pi/12 , and so on.
Note: Since, sine is an odd function, the value of sin(5pi/12) = sin(5pi/12).
