A formula for c omputing the trigonometric identities for the third-angle ex is ts , but it requires finding the z eroes of the c ubic equation , where x is the value of the s ine func tion at s ome angle and d is the k nown value of the s ine func tion at the triple angle. However, the dis c riminant of this equation is negative, s o this equation has three real roots (of whic h only one is the s olution within the c orrec t third-c irc le) but none of thes e s olutions is reduc ible to a real algebraic ex pres s ion, as they us e intermediate c omplex numbers under the c ube roots , (whic h may be ex pres s ed in terms of real-only func tions only if us ing hy perbolic func tions ). Sine, cosine, and tangent of multiple angles [edit] For s pec ific multiples , thes e follow from the angle addition formulas , while the general formula was given by 16th c entury Frenc h mathematic ian Vieta.
