#### Question

Evaluate the following

`(5cos^2 60° + 4sec^2 30° - tan^2 45°)/(sin^2 30°+cos^2 30°)`

#### Solution

`(5cos^2 60° + 4sec^2 30° - tan^2 45°)/(sin^2 30°+cos^2 30°)`

`(5(1/2)^2 + 4(2/sqrt3)^2 - (1)^2)/((1/2)^2 + ((sqrt3)/2)^2)`

`=(5(1/4)+(16/3)-1)/(1/4+3/4)`

`= ((15+64-12)/12)/(4/4) = 67/12`

Is there an error in this question or solution?
