Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sin^2(a)=\frac{1}{2}(1\cos(2a)) \\ \text{ \let } x=2a \text{ which makes } \frac{x}{2}=a \\ \sin^2(\frac{x}{2})=\frac{1}{2}(1\cos(x)) \\ \text{ your } x=\frac{5\pi}{6} \\ \text{ that is the thing you want to enter } \\ \text{ then you will need to decide which sign to use when solving for } \\ \sin(\frac{1}{2} \cdot \frac{5\pi}{6})\]
