# How do you solve 2 sin squared x is equal to sin x?

There will be 4 possible solutions if all you are looking for is the angles, so you will need to find out which quadrant your angle is in.

2sin²x = sin x **Subtract sin x from both sides.

2sin²x - sin x = 0 **Then factor out sin x.

sin x(2sin x - 1) = 0 **Set each equal to zero. (AB=0 is the same as A=0 OR B=0).

*sin x = 0* or 2sin x - 1 = 0 to 2sin x = 1 to *sin x =
1/2*

At this point all that is left to do is find out where sin x = 0 or 1/2, which is 0, 180 for sin x = 0 or 30, 150 for sin x = 1/2.

### What is sine squared?

Answer 1 Put simply, sine squared is sinX x sinX. However, sine is a function, so the real question must be 'what is sinx squared' or 'what is sin squared x': 'Sin(x) squared' would be sin(x^2), i.e. the 'x' is squared before performing the function sin. 'Sin squared x' would be sin^2(x) i.e. sin squared times sin squared: sin(x) x sin(x). This can also be written as (sinx)^2 but means exactly the same. Answer 2…

### What does negative sine squared plus cosine squared equal?

To determine what negative sine squared plus cosine squared is equal to, start with the primary trigonometric identity, which is based on the pythagorean theorem... sin2(theta) + cos2(theta) = 1 ... and then solve for the question... cos2(theta) = 1 - sin2(theta) 2 cos2(theta) = 1 - sin2(theta) + cos2(theta) 2 cos2(theta) - 1 = - sin2(theta) + cos2(theta)

### How do you prove that the sin over one minus the cosine minus one plus the cosine over the sine equals zero?

Multiply both sides by sin(1-cos) and you lose the denominators and get (sin squared) minus 1+cos times 1-cos. Then multiply out (i.e. expand) 1+cos times 1-cos, which will of course give the difference of two squares: 1 - (cos squared). (because the cross terms cancel out.) (This is diff of 2 squares because 1 is the square of 1.) And so you get (sin squared) - (1 - (cos squared)) = (sin squared) + (cos…

### How do you solve double angle equations for trigonometry?

There are two ways to solve for the double angle formulas in trigonometry. The first is to use the angle addition formulas for sine and cosine. * sin(a + b) = sin(a)cos(b) + cos(a)sin(b) * cos(a + b) = cos(a)cos(b) - sin(a)sin(b) if a = b, then * sin(2a) = sin(a)cos(a) + cos(a)sin(a) = 2sin(a)cos(a) * cos(2a) = cos2(a) - sin2(b) The cooler way to solve for the double angle formulas is to use Euler's…

### How do you find an angle in a triangle using the area and two sides Area 12.5cm2 Side a 6cm Side b 5cm?

That is a bit complicated. You need to know sines and cosines and more geometry. Given area K and 2 sides a and b ,the relation is K = (1/2) (absinC); solve for angle C; then the third side c, from law of cosines is c =sqrt (a squared +b squared -2abcosC); then sin A = 2K/bc and sin B = 2K/ac. solve for angles B and C. In your case, approximately, C = 56…
