Thank you to Chris L T521 for submitting this problem.

Let $A$, $B$ and $C$ be sides of a triangle, and let $\alpha$ be the angle opposite of side $A$, $\beta$ be the angle opposite of side $B$ and $\gamma$ be the angle opposite of side $C$. Show that

\[\frac{A+B}{C} = \frac{\cos\left(\tfrac{1}{2}(\alpha-\beta)\right)}{\sin\left(\tfrac{1}{2}\gamma\right)}\]

Hint:
