sin(78*2.5) = sin(195) = -.2588 So, what's wrong? sin 210 = -1/2 5/2 θ = 210,330,... θ = 84,132,... when you divided by 5/2, you also need to adjust the amount you add. It's best to get a positive reference angle and then work from there.

Since the nth swing has length 100*0.99^(n-1), you want to find n when 100 * 0.99^(n-1) < 50 .99^(n-1) < .5 (n-1) log.99 < log.5 n > 69.9 So, on the 70th swing the arc is less than 50 cm. Now you know the parameters for the geometric sequence. Just use the sum ...
