  • Principal interval of sin is \([-\frac{\pi}{2},\frac{\pi}{2}]\)
  • \(sin(\pi-\theta)=sin\theta\)
\(\frac{3\pi}{5}\notin\:[-\frac{\pi}{2},\frac{\pi}{2}]\) which is principal interval of sin
Therefore, reduce it within the principal interval.
We know that \(sin(\pi-\theta)=sin\theta\) By taking \(\theta=\frac{3\pi}{5}\) we get
