Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Idk if this helps, but Sin(3theta)=3Sin(theta)4(Sin(theta))^3 I tried using it and I got  4 sin³ 18 + 2 sin 18  1/2 = 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0thanks i got it now it should be like this 2cos(36)sin(18) and multiply by cos18/cos18 as it equals 1 so cos(36)sin(36)/cos(18) and then multiply by 2 and 1/2 so 1/2sin72/cos18 then use co function so sin72= cos18 1/2cos(18)/cos(18) cosines cancel each other so = 1/2
