    I have no idea what are you doing
    the solution should be


    3x-15 =30 +360n where n=integer
    3x-15 =150 +360n

    Why and where did you get n from
    and why add 360n?

    sin and cos graphs repeat every 360

    I just did

    I have defined n as integer.
    therefore you get more solutions in 360, 720, 1080, 1440 etc
    thus 1x360, 2x360, 3x360, 4x360 etc

    where is the Sine negative? - in the 3rd and 4th quadrants of a cast diagram.
    So your 2 main answers will be (for now, take the arcsin value of +1/2) 180 deg+Answer, 360 deg -answer.

    to each of these, you add odd a multiple of 360 deg, since the sin graph is periodic, and repeats every 360 deg.

    The trick, for your range, is knowing when to stop adding multiples..

    Then you have to subtract 15 deg from each, and / each by 3.

    I mean sin120 is not 0.5

    apologies - i must be really short-sighted - read it as -1/2

    (should`ve gone to specsavers)

    OP - ignore my (wrong) hint.

    apologies all - (i`ll go away now and get my girlfriend to put on her heels and walk up and down on my back!)

    I have done

    Your working was fine APART from the fact that you used 120 instead of 150

    What else do you need
