The las t s everal ex amples are c orollaries of a bas ic fac t about the irreduc ible c y c lotomic poly nomials : the c os ines are the real parts of the z eroes of thos e poly nomials ; the s um of the z eroes is the Möbius func tion evaluated at (in the very las t c as e above) 21; only half of the z eroes are pres ent above. The two identities prec eding this las t one aris e in the s ame fas hion with 21 replac ed by 10 and 15, res pec tively . Many of thos e c urious identities s tem from more general fac ts lik e the following:[36] and Combining thes e gives us If n is an odd number (n = 2m + 1) we c an mak e us e of the s y mmetries to get The trans fer func tion of the Butterworth low pas s filter c an be ex pres s ed in terms of poly nomial and poles . By s etting the frequenc y as the c utoff frequenc y , the following identity c an be proved: Computing π [edit] An effic ient way to c ompute π is bas ed on the following identity without variables , due toMac hin: or, alternatively , by us ing an identity of Leonhard Euler: A useful mnemonic for certain values of sines and cosines For c ertain s imple angles , the s ines and c os ines tak e the form Miscellany [edit] for 0 ≤ n ≤ 4, whic h mak es them eas y to remember.

An identity of Euclid [edit] Euc lid s howed in Book XIII, Propos ition 10 of his Elements that the area of the s quare on the s ide of a regular pentagon ins c ribed in a c irc le is equal to the s um of the areas of the s quares on the s ides of the regular hex agon and the regular dec agon ins c ribed in the s ame c irc le.
