    ok u know that\[\sin 2x=2 \sin x\cos x\]so equation becomes\[2 \sin x\cos x+\sin x=0\]take out common factor\[\sin x(2\cos x+1)=0\]using zero product property\[\sin x=0\]or\[2\cos x+1=0\]

    but the equation is sin^2(x)

    oh sorry\[\sin^2 x+\sin x=0\]take out common factor\[\sin x(\sin x+1)=0\]easier :)

    \[\sin x=0\]or\[\sin x=-1\]

    u start like this: Let x be sin(x) and x^2+x=0 x(x+1)=0 then, x=0; & x=-1 sin is at radian -3/4pi and pi

    u substitute x value in sin(x) and -1 is co-terminal (270) angle and 0
