    sin(a) is the y value in the unit circle of angle a (see diagram) So if we take sin(-a), we will always be on the other side of the y axis. (-a means 360-a°) Therefore is sin(a) is positive, sin(-a) will be the negative value of sin(a) and the opposite applies

    Also we can use the sum/diff formula for sin sin(-a) = sin(0-a) = sin(0)cos(a)-cos(0)sin(a) = 0*cos(a)-1*sin(a) = -sin(a)
