# Special TrianglesWatch

#1
I have the following question:

Using the special triangles, write down the value of sin255

I know the equilateral special triangle and the isosceles right-angled triangle, but those only works for calculating the values of sinx, cosx or tanx when x = 30, 60 or 45 degrees.

I'm a bit confused on how to approach this question; help would be kindly appreciated. Thanks.

Think about the period of sin. What does sin255 also equal in terms of sin?

Even though you've solved it, here's a thought. I bet the question asked for sin(225) rather than sin(255).
