If $\sin \theta+\cos \theta=1$,then the value of $\sin 2\theta$ is equal to

$\begin{array}{1 1}(A)\;1&(B)\;\large\frac{1}{2}\\(C)\;0&(D)\;-1\end{array} $

1 Answer

Toolbox:
  • $\sin^2\theta+\cos ^2\theta=1$
  • $\sin 2\theta=2\sin \theta\cos\theta$
Given :
$\sin \theta+\cos \theta=1$
Squaring both side
$(\sin \theta+\cos \theta)^2=1$
$\sin^2\theta+\cos^2\theta+2\sin \theta\cos \theta=1$
$1+2\sin \theta\cos \theta=1$
$2\sin \theta\cos\theta=0$
$\sin 2\theta=0$
Hence (C) is the correct answer.
