if sin a/2 + cos a/2 = -1/2, then sin2a equals..........??
Asked by SHIVANI_SOOD | 14 Apr, 2010, 05:25: PM Expert Answer

sin a/2 + cos a/2 = -1/2

Square on both sides,

sin2 a/2 + 2sina/2 cosa/2 + cos2 a/2 = 1/4

1 + 2sina/2 cosa/2  = 1/4

1 + sin a  = 1/4

Hence sin a = -3/4

and cos a = (1 - 9/16) = 7/4.

sin 2a = sina cosa = (-3/4)( 7/4) = -3 7/16
