Hey, I'm stuck in another math problem... sin A + sin B + sin C + sin D = 4 * sin(A+B)/2 * sin(B+C)/2 * sin(C+A)/2 "prove in a convex square ABCD the formula above" thanks! Last edited by greg1313; February 28th, 2018 at 08:27 PM.

What is a convex square?

It's reasonable to assume that "convex square" should be "convex quadrilateral". The given equation will hold if sin(A + B + C) = sin(D). This is easy to prove by use of these identities and the fact that the internal angles of a convex quadrilateral sum to 360°.
