    you need \(\sin(\theta)\) so compute these do you know how to find it?

    sin 2 theta = 2 sin theta cos theta cos 2 theta = 2 cos ^2 theta - 1 tan 2 theta = sin 2 theta / cos 2 theta

    If costheta=4/5 then sintheta= 3/5 \[\sin2\theta=2\sin\theta \cos\theta\]

    there 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 \(\sin(\theta)=\frac{3}{5}\)

    so 2 sin theta = 2 sin 3/5 cos 4/5

    no do not make that mistake, it is a common one do not use \(\theta=\frac{4}{5}\) use \(\cos(\theta)=\frac{4}{5}\) so \[\sin(2\theta)=2\times \frac{4}{5}\times \frac{3}{5}\]

    no not the cosine and sine of those numbers, those numbers ARE the cosine and sine

    use the numbers themselves, they are your sines and cosines
