Floor Fulfilment (Posted on 2014-12-17) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Given that

    Σm = 1 to 44 cos mo
y = ---------------
    Σm = 1 to 44 sin mo

By regrouping the terms of the numerator we get: 

Σm = 1 to 44 cos m  =(2*cos(45/2)) *(cos(43/2)+ cos(41/2)+ cos(39/2)+… cos(1/2))  (i)


By the same reasoning:


Σm = 1 to 44 sin m     =(2*sin(45/2)) *(cos(43/2)+
cos(41/2)+ cos(39/2)+… cos(1/2))     (ii)


So:  y=cot (45/2 )


Since tan 45=1    and   tan 2x=2x/(1-x^2)  
cot (22.5)=1+sqrt(2)


Answer: floor 100*(1+sqrt(2)= 241
