it doesn't explain anything other than what i have written down, i have to pay for the step by step visual. sorry for the inconvenience, i wish there was more i could show you, but that's what i need help with

after this try sin(2pi/3) just to see how will change the result

after sin(4pi/3) and at the last one try the sin(5pi/3)

OpenStudy (jhonyy9):

sin(pi/3) is in quadrant one sin(2pi/3) is in second quadrant sin(4pi/3) in 3rd quadrant sin(5pi/3) in 4th quadrant

Actually, it's the angle pi/3 that is in quadrant I. We want to find the sine of this angle. Starting with the positive x-axis, which represents an angle of zero, pivot around the origin counterclockwise to pi/3 (equivalent to 60 degrees). Draw a ray from the origin to that circle shown on your drawing. Draw a straight line from that point on the circle straight down to the positive x-axis. That line represents the side "opposite" the angle. Darken the line segment on the positive x-axis from the origin to the point where the "opposite side" intersects the positive x-axis. This is the side "adjacent to" the angle. If you have a chart of the unit circle, you may be able to read off the lengths of the "opp side" and the "adj side." They are Sqrt(3) and 1 respectively. The Pythagorean Theorem will give you the length of the ray you drew at the beginning: Since x^2+y^2=r^2, \[1^2+(\sqrt{3})^2=2^2, so~the~radius ~is ~r=2.\]

The sine of pi/3 is thus opp/hyp = Sqrt(3) / 2. Actually, once you've worked with trig functions a while, you'll probably remember this fact easily and not have to go through all these steps to find sin pi/3.
