Hii

replace cosC/2 with cos(pi – A-B)/2 and then use the simplification and you will get the answer after a bit of rearrangement

A+B+C=PIE
COSA/2+cosb/2+cosc/2
  • cosa/2+2cosb+c/4 +2cosb-c/4
  • a+b+c=pie =cosa/2=cos(pie/2-b+c/2)= sin b+c/2
  • sin b+c/2 +cosb+c/4cosb-c/4
  • 2sin b+c/4cosb+c/4 + 2cosb+c/2cosb-c/4
  • 2cosb+c/4(sinb+c/4 +cosb-c/4)
  • 2cosb+c/4 + [cos(pie/2-b+c/4) +cosb-c/4]
  • 2cosb+c/4 2cospie-c/4 cospie-b/4
  • 4cospie-a/4 cospie-b/4 cospie-c/4
