# State whether the following are true or false. Justify your answer. sin θ =4/3, for some angle θ - Mathematics

Course

#### Question

sin θ =4/3, for some angle θ

#### Solution

sin Θ =  4/3

We know that in a right-angled triangle,

sin theta = ("Side opposite to"angle theta)/"Hypotenuse"

In a right-angled triangle, hypotenuse is always greater than the remaining two sides. Therefore, such value of sin θ is not possible.

Hence, the given statement is false

Is there an error in this question or solution?
