Hello everyone,

I hope this advanced enough to be in this section.

I am doing a math project, and at the moment I am confronted with this expression:

∏_(y=1)^(n-1) 2 (a^(1/n) sin(yπ/n)) [capital pi y=1 -> n-1]

I know from Wolfram|Alpha (see link) that this is equal to:

n*a^((n-1)/n).

However I want to be able to show this manually, and I have no idea of how to approach the task at hand.

Can someone please explain the steps involved to get to the answer above?

Thank you very much.
