Hi, How can we evaluate $\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^{2n}x_{i}$ given, $\displaystyle \sum_{i=1}^{2n}\sin^{1} (x_{i})=n\pi $ Thx.

I see nothing that keeps us from keeping $x_i$ constant. $n \pi = \displaystyle \sum \limits_{i=1}^{2n}\sin^{1}(x_i) = 2n \sin^{1}(x)$ $\dfrac{\pi}{2} = \sin^{1}(x)$ $x = 1$ and thus $\displaystyle \sum \limits_{i=1}^{2n}~x_i = 2n(1) = 2n$ We note that $x_i \leq 1$ and so $n\pi$ is the maximum value the 2nd sum can attain and it attains it only when $x_i = 1,~\forall i$ Thus the value of the first sum is unique.
