Both s and c can be positive rational (separately).
But they can't both be positive rational (simultaneously).
Suppose s and c are both positive rationals.
Then s^5 + c^5 = sin^2(5D) + cos^2(5D) = 1.
But s^5 + c^5 = 1 with s,c positive rational contradicts
FLT for n = 5.
Many times you've posted questions nearly identical to the
one above. Evidently you've learned nothing from the answers
You're chasing your own tail.
