sin 2x = -sqrt3 /2

sin -sqrt3 /2 is 4pi/3 and 5pi/3 in the unit circle

2x= 4pi/3 + 2npi 2x=5pi/3 + 2npi

I do not know what to do at this point.

1, sqrt 3,sides and 2 hypotenuse

sin A = + (sqrt 3)/2 if A = pi/3

so

if A = pi + pi/3 which is 4 pi/3

or

if A = 2 pi - pi/3 which is 5 pi/3

then sin A = -sqrt(3) /2 {AGREE}

But A = 2x

so

x = 2 pi/3 or 5 pi/6

Now if they mean x can be as large as 2 pi we better look for bigger angles for A

Like A = 2 pi + 4 pi/3 = 10 pi/3

then x = 5 pi/3

and

Like A = 2 pi + 5 pi/3 = 11 pi/3

then x = 11 pi/6

which is still less than 2 pi (barely

so

I get four values for x total
