I was curious for Q 16 a) i), why does sin(theta)=sin(-alpha) mean that theta = - alpha? Why don't you have to consider it in terms of general solutions, with theta = 2*pi*k - (-1)^k alpha, and then some how work it out from there?

If -pi < x <= pi, -pi < y < pi, and sin(x) = 1/2 and sin(y) = -1/2, then couldn't x = pi/6, 5pi/6 and y = -pi/6, -5pi/6 . Then, couldn't x = pi/6 and y = -5pi/6, then x does not equal -y?

Thanks
