I meant to type this one:
If the sine of an acute angle is 0.8, what is the sine of twice that angle?
1.60 or .64?


  • Algebra 2 -

    Neither. Sine can never exceed 1.

    If the sine is 0.8, the cosine is 0.6.
    (Think of a 3,4,5 right triangle, or use cos^2 = 1 - sin^2)

    The sine is 2x is 2 sinx cosx.

    In this case, that is 2*(3/5)(4/5)= 24/25
