I know that 1 working way is to do: *sin(90)=1, so you get: i=2*isin(theta) >> 1=2sin(theta) > > sin(theta)=(1/2) >> theta=30 But how do I know from here that the equation has 2 solutions? and what is the second solution? I also tried to do (which didn't work) the following: 2sin(theta)=90+360k >> sin(theta)=45+180k < and you can see from this one that it has 2 solutions, but they are wrong Last edited by noobinmath; April 10th, 2016 at 01:18 AM.
