COMMENTS

An algebraic number of degree 16 and denominator 2.  Charles R Greathouse IV, Nov 02 2012
The Fifteenth Century Persian mathematician Jamshid AlKashi was the first to calculate the value of sine of one degree correct to ten sexagesimal places (17 decimal digits) from sine of 3 degrees in his Risala alWatar wa'l Jaib.  Mohammad K. Azarian,Jan 14 2017

FORMULA

Equals cos(87 degrees) = cos(29*Pi/60) = sin(Pi/60) = sqrt(8sqrt(3)sqrt(15)sqrt(102*sqrt(5)))/4 (an intermediate calculation by Dr. Rob  see Math Forum link).  Rick L. Shepherd, Jul 03 2006
