**Need help with a homework question!**

The question gives: The first three terms of a geometric sequence are sin(x), sin(2x) and 4sin(x)cos^2(x) for -π/2 < x < π/2.

First I had to find the common ratio which is 2cos(x)

Then the question asks to find the values of x for which the geometric series sinx + sin2x + ... converges.

I am not sure how to go about this question.

I tried using

S∞= u/(1-r) where r is the common ratio, u is the first term of the sequence and S∞ the sum of the series.

this sum would equal

sinx/(1-2cosx)

Please help! My finals are coming up and I need to know this thank you :)
