Manuel found that cos (2θ) = -7 and θ is not in the first quadrant. To remember it more easily, he wants to convert cos (2θ) into sin (θ). What is the value of sin (θ)?
no solution 🎯
There is no angle which when inserted to a cosine function outputs a value of -7. It is because there is no triangle where one of the sides is 7 units while the hypotenuse is only 1 unit (from the identity
cos (θ) = adjacent / hypotenuse), since the hypotenuse must be longer than both the legs of the right triangle.
