This afternoon I've been studying the pythagorean identities & compound angles. I've got a problem with a question working with 2 sets of compound angles:
Solve, in the interval $0^\circ \leq \theta \leq 360^\circ$, $$\cos(\theta + 25^\circ) + \sin(\theta +65^\circ) = 1$$
I've attempted expanding but reach a point with no common factors & see how to manipulate the trig ratios to move on; is there a solution without expanding?
$$\cos\theta\cos 25^\circ-\sin\theta \sin 25^\circ+\sin\theta\cos 65^\circ+\sin 65^\circ\cos\theta=1$$
$$\cos \theta\;\left(\cos 25^\circ+\sin 65^\circ\right) +\sin\theta\;\left(\cos 65^\circ-\sin 25^\circ\right)=1$$
Could you tell me if I've made a mistake or how I could continue; thanks
