EXPERT ANSWER

Ayush Kumar Jha , Meritnation Expert added an answer, on 6/2/13

We have to evaluate-

=cos10 cos50 cos60 cos70

= cos50 cos10 cos70

The above expression can be manipulated as-

= cos(60-Q) cosQ cos(60+Q)

where, Q=10 such that

cos(60-Q) cosQ cos(60+Q)=

So,

= cos30

=cos10 cos50 cos60 cos70

=1/2 cos50 cos10 cos70

=1/2 cos(60-Q) cosQ cos(60+Q)               [Q=10;  cos(60-Q) cosQ cos(60+Q)=1/4COS3Q]

=1/2  1/4cos3.10

=1/2 1/4.root of 3/2

=root of 3/16
