    Start from inside out: 1/2 = sin 30° -> 2arcsin1/2 = 2 * 30 = ... => sin (.. ) = ...

    thanks, I made a typo though. I meant to say \[\sin\left( 2\sin^{-1}\left( \frac{x}{2}\right)\right)\]

    \[y=\sin\left( 2\sin^{-1}\left( \frac{x}{2}\right)\right)\]\[\sin^{-1}y=2\sin^{-1}\left(\frac{x}{2}\right)\]

    Use the half angle formula: sin2a = 2 sina cosa with a = arcsin (x/2)
