    I don't see an image, but factorising is the way to go. Do you see where to go now?

    You need to be able to recognise the sin, cos and tan of 0, 30, 45, 60, 90 degrees and the equivalent in radians.

    Do you not recognize tan 45 from a "special" triangle? (I think perhaps this is GCSE knowledge you may have forgotten, but I may be mistaken.)

    If not, draw yourself a right-angled triangle with a 45 degree angle in it. What must the remaining angle be? So what type of triangle do you have?

    We didn't get taught it until C2. Eiher way it's a useful thing to remember.

    Really? That't terrible! (Not you, I mean - it's terrible that something that basic isn't taught as part of GCSE trig.)

    I agree. A lot of people I know forget it by second year too, becoming too reliant on calculators.
