I think it does.

is Sin (2 x 45) which is Sin 90

Sin^-1 90 = 1

So 45 is the 5th solution right? To work out the last one, i do 180 + 45. Is that correct?

I am not sure what you are struggling with but I would suggest that you tell your teacher that you needed A LOT of help on this and ask him/her to go through it again with you

Yes i will do that. And i really appreciate the help you've given me up to this point. Could you be a saint and explain to me how you get the final 2 solutions. I feel like i'm going round in circles, and my head will explode. I will then hopefully be able to work out how you did it, and check each solution individually to see if it's right.

So is 45 correct? And then to work out the other it's actually, 270/2 which is 135? So 45 and 135 is right and NOT 45, 225?
