(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

This is from a physics problem, but my question is more mathematically oriented.

After working through the problem, I arrive at the last step.

Sin(x)=.967

The question says that there aretwopossible angles for x.

3. The attempt at a solution

arcsin(.967) gives me 75.2°, which is one of the correct answers.

I am stumped when it comes to finding the second possible angle, which happens to be approximately 105°

I understand that the inverse trig functions are restricted, so how do I find all possible answers for these kinds of questions.

Thank you!
