If sinA = 1/2, find the value of sin3A

Can someone pls help me to solve this? I just know that sin2A = 2sinA.cosA, but it doesn't seem like that formula is helpful in this question. I have no idea about what to do for sin3A.

For this question, we need to use the formula of sin3A = 3sinA - 4sin3A

If it was cos3A, the formula would be 4cos3A - 3cosA

So in this question, we have given sinA = 1/2. Let's use it in the formula of sin3A

sin3A = 3sinA - 4sin3A = 3(12\frac 12) - 4(18\frac{1}{8}) = 32\frac 32 - 12\frac 12 = 1

The answer is 1.
