The statement is “ The trigonometric function for the sum of two angles is not equal to the trigonometric function of the first angle plus trigonometry function of the second angle.” i.e. in a mathematical way, we can say
\(\displaystyle{\sin{{\left({A}+{B}\right)}}}\ne{\sin{{\left({A}\right)}}}+{\sin{{\left({B}\right)}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\cos{{\left({A}+{B}\right)}}}\ne{\cos{{\left({A}\right)}}}+{\cos{{\left({B}\right)}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\tan{{\left({A}+{B}\right)}}}\ne{\tan{{\left({A}\right)}}}+{\tan{{\left({B}\right)}}}\)
The statement is True.
Since the formulas for the trigonometric function of the sum of two angles are
\(\displaystyle{\sin{{\left({A}+{B}\right)}}}={\sin{{\left({A}\right)}}}{\cos{{\left({B}\right)}}}+{\cos{{\left({A}\right)}}}{\sin{{\left({B}\right)}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\cos{{\left({A}+{B}\right)}}}={\cos{{\left({A}\right)}}}{\cos{{\left({B}\right)}}}+{\sin{{\left({A}\right)}}}{\sin{{\left({B}\right)}}}\)
\(\displaystyle{\tan{{\left({A}+{B}\right)}}}=\frac{{{\tan{{\left({A}\right)}}}+{\tan{{\left({B}\right)}}}}}{{{1}-{\tan{{\left({A}\right)}}}{\tan{{\left({B}\right)}}}}}\)
Hence generally the trigonometric function for the sum of two angles is not equal to the trigonometric function of the first angle plus trigonometry function of the second angle.

Sheila is in Ms. Cai's class . She noticed that the graph of the perimeter for the "dented square" in problem 3-61 was a line . "I wonder what the graph of its area looks like ," she said to her teammates .
a. Write an equation for the area of the "dented square" if xx represents the length of the large square and yy represents the area of the square.
b. On graph paper , graph the rule you found for the area in part (a). Why does a 1st−quadrant graph make sense for this situation? Are there other values of xx that cannot work in this situation? Be sure to include an indication of this on your graph, as necessary.
c. Explain to Sheila what the graph of the area looks like.
d. Use the graph to approximate xx when the area of the shape is 20 square units.
