**MathMate**, Tuesday, September 6, 2011 at 8:07amTo find

sin(θ)=(√2)/2

between 0 and 360°

where

(√2)/2 = 0.707 (approx.),

it would be much more visual to look at the form of the sine function between 0 and 360°.

Study the graph at the link (at the end of this post).

It is positive between 0 and 180° and negative for the rest of the interval, therefore between 180 and 360° there will not be a solution.

Between 0 and 180°, draw an imaginary horizontal line through y=0.7. This line will intersect the graph at two places, and precisely, at 60° and 120°.

The axis of symmetry is at 90°, so it is easy to remember (90-30)°=60°, and (90+30)°=120°.

You will use these angles very often in trigometry for the rest of your academic career, so it's worthwhile memorizing them.
