Why is it the sine of an angle is also equal to the sine of 180 minus that angle ? e.g. sin 45degrees = sin 135degrees

Because the elevation of the inscribed triangle (to the unit circle) is still positive.
I also noticed that.

but why "180 - angle", not "angle - 180"
Well, in the given example. If angle = 45, then 45 - 180 = -90. sin(-90) is not equal to sin(45)
Sorry, the calculation was wrong there. 45 - 180 = -135. But the same applies, sin(-135) is not equal to sin (45)
It would have the same *magnitude* but not the same *sign*.
I already understand that the value of sine in Q1 is also equal to the sine in Q2. but where did you get the 180- angle like how did you get the lwh for volume
Well, volume doesn't come into question here. But it's a simple matter of the definition of the "sine" function. 180 - 45 = 135, and when you have 45 and 135....the inscribed triangle's elevation is equal in both magnitude and sign.
If you go the other direction, you get opposed angles (pointing opposite directions). So you'll get an elevation equal in magnitude but NOT equal in sign.
ohh ok thanks :)
np.
so "sin(180-angle)" is equal to "angle" because "180-angle" always give an angle that is equal to the sine of the "angle". is it like that ?
Well, because the way sine is DEFINED. Remember SOHCAHTOA. Sin = Opp/Hyp Hypotenuse is always positive. So you're looking at the opposite leg of a triangle. The elevations must both have the same sign, if they do not...then the sine's will not match.
ok, thanks again :)
