  1. suspect you mean
    sin[ (1/2) arc sin -7/25) ]

    draw your right triangle
    call our angle A in quadrant 3 or 4 use 3
    sides are -7 and -24, hypotenuse = 25
    sinA = -7/25
    cosA = -24/25

    Half angle
    sin (.5A) = - sqrt( [1-cosA]/2)
    = -sqrt( [ 1/25 ] /2 )
    = -(1/5)sqrt (1/2)
