If cscx=2 and x greater 90 degrees and x less than 180 degrees, then sin x/2 =

  • trig - ,

    So sinx = 1/2 and x must be in 2nd quadrant.
    then by Pythagoras cos x = -√3/2

    we know cos 2A = 1 - 2sin^2A
    then cosx = 1 - 2sin^2(x/2)
    -√3/2 = 1 - 2sin^2(x/2)
    2sin^2(x/2) = 1 + √3/2
    sin^2(x/2) = (2 + √3)/4
    sin(x/2) = (√(2+√3))/2
