  1. To 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.

  2. Good explanation, but I think you want 45 deg.
