Hello nvwxgn Originally Posted by nvwxgn How to calculate this: Given sin θ = 3/4, 0º < θ < 90º, what's the value of sin (4θ)? Thanks Use Pythagoras' Theorem to find ; then use the formula for that you'll find on this page. Can you complete it now? Grandad

Figured it out, using complex numbers: (cos θ + isin θ)^4 Isolating sin and making the substitutions, we have -3sqrt(7)/32, which agrees with my calculator.
