The value of sin 35*sin 55 - cos 35*cos 55 has to be determined. Here it is not necessary to know the values of the sine or cosine of 35 or 55. Instead use the rule: sin a*sin b - cos a*cos b = -cos(a + b)

sin 35*sin 55 - cos 35*cos 55

=> -cos(35 + 55)

=> -cos 90

=> 0

**The value of sin 35*sin 55 - cos 35*cos 55 = 0**

sin 35*sin 55 - cos 35*cos 55

=> -cos(35 + 55)

=> -cos 90

=> 0

Similarly sin(90)=1

**sin35*sin55-cos35*cos55=1**
