Some good trig practice problems for IITJEE Mains Mathematics

Problem:

Find the value of \cos^{4}\frac{\pi}{8} + \cos^{4}\frac{3\pi}{8}+\cos^{4}\frac{5\pi}{8}+\cos^{4}\frac{7\pi}{8}.

Problem:

Find the value of \cos{\theta}\cos{2\theta}\cos{4\theta}\ldots\cos{2^{n-1}}{\theta}

Problem:

Find the value of \cos{(2\pi/15)}\cos{(4\pi/15)}\cos{(8\pi/15)}\cos{(14\pi/15)}

Problem:

Prove that (\frac{\cos{A}+\cos{B}}{\sin{A}-\sin{B}})^{n}+(\frac{\sin{A}+\sin{B}}{\cos{A}-\cos{B}})^{n} = 2\cot^{n}(\frac{A-B}{2}), if n is even, and is zero, if n is odd.
