I was just wondering what anyone else gets for the following question:

solve 0<x<pi

sin 6θ = sin 2θ

P.S. I know that one of the answers is pi over 8

The other solutions are 3pi/8, 5pi/8, 7pi/8 (found from drawing a sketch and knowing one solution is pi/8).

I don't really know the proper way of doing these though - it's not something covered in the Higher.

The proper way of doing things is to put both on the same side ie
sin6&- sin 2& = 0
then solve on from there I think although without knowing & I dont see how that could be done.

Can I get help on the following question please. I tried it b4 and got the answer but just now, more or less a day b4 the exam, I can't get it!

For the formula S = T10^-kl, find k given that l = 10 when S = 100T.

Substitute:

100T = T10^(-10k)

100 = 10^(-10k)
log_10 100 = -10k
2 = -10k
k = - 1/5
