Toolbox:
  • \( sin^{-1}x+sin^{-1}y=sin^{-1} \bigg[ x\sqrt {1-y^2}+y\sqrt{1-x^2} \bigg]\)
  • \( sin^{-1}x=cos^{-1} \sqrt{1-x^2}\)
L.H.S
\( sin^{-1} \bigg[ \large\frac{3}{5} \sqrt{1-\large\frac{69}{289}}+\large\frac{8}{17} \sqrt{1-\large\frac{9}{25}} \bigg]\)
\( = sin^{-1} \bigg[ \large\frac{77}{85} \bigg]\)
\( = cos^{-1} \large\frac{36}{85}\)
