Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sin 2 theta = 2 sin theta cos theta cos 2 theta = 2 cos ^2 theta  1 tan 2 theta = sin 2 theta / cos 2 theta

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1If costheta=4/5 then sintheta= 3/5 \[\sin2\theta=2\sin\theta \cos\theta\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there is a picture of an angle whose cosine is \(\frac{4}{5}\) you find the third side by pythagoras, or recalling the 3  4  5 right triangle this tells you \(\sin(\theta)=\frac{3}{5}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 2 sin theta = 2 sin 3/5 cos 4/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no do not make that mistake, it is a common one do not use \(\theta=\frac{4}{5}\) use \(\cos(\theta)=\frac{4}{5}\) so \[\sin(2\theta)=2\times \frac{4}{5}\times \frac{3}{5}\]
