## Homework Statement

Use double-angle and addition formulæ and other relations for trigonometrical functions to find an expression for sin(3x) in terms of sin x alone.

My problem is I don't know what is meant by "find an expression for sin(3x) in terms of sin x alone.". I know the relevant formulae but do not know what is actually wanted of the question. I know I can 'split' it by going sin(2x + x) then using addition formulae... But I don't know why or what is expected as a final answer. An equation involving only sin and no cos?

## Homework Equations

Trig identities, addition formulae

## The Attempt at a Solution

No idea.

PS. I found the answer online but had no idea why that's the answer - please don't just give me the answer :).
