Maybe one way is that if you have sinx=y , where y is a number, find from the tables for which x you have y.

Then if you find x, find x/2 and from the tables again find sin(x/2) - July 24th 2009, 02:38 AMjashansinghal
If i know sin x = y from the trig table but i dont have sin (x/2), then????

ok....

i know sin 45 = 1/sqrt 2

but i dont know sin 22.5

By using trig tables you should be able to find it.

Is there 22.5 in a trig table ? -_-

Note that since 45 is in the first quadrant, 45/2 is also in the first quadrant.

We know that

So

Let

Then

This is a quadratic equation. In your situation, we have :

Solve for T, by remembering it's positive (because it's a square)

And then take its square root, by remembering that it must be positive (because x/2 is in the first quadrant) - July 24th 2009, 03:00 AMpomp
