given: sinØ = 3/4, and Ø is in quadrant II

then by Pythagoras, y= 3, x = ? , r = 4

x^2 + 9 = 16

x = ±√5 , but in II x = -√7

so cosØ = -√7/4

sin 2Ø = 2sinØcosØ

= 2(3/4)(-√7/4) = -6√7/16

= -3√7/8

cos 2Ø = cos^2 Ø - sin^2 Ø = 7/16 - 9/16

= -2/16

= - 1/8

tan 2Ø = sin 2Ø / cos 2Ø

= (-3√7/8) / (-1/8)

= 3√7
