# Sine of Multiple of Pi Plus and Half

## Theorem

Let $x \in \R$ be a real number.

Let $\sin x$ be the sine of $x$.

Then:

$\forall n \in \Z: \sin \left({n + \dfrac 1 2}\right) \pi = \left({-1}\right)^n$

or alternatively:

 $$\displaystyle$$ $$\displaystyle \forall m \in \Z:$$ $$\displaystyle$$ $$\displaystyle \sin \left({2 m + \dfrac 1 2}\right) \pi$$ $$=$$ $$\displaystyle$$ $$\displaystyle 1$$ $$\displaystyle$$ $$\displaystyle$$ $$\displaystyle$$ $$\displaystyle \forall m \in \Z:$$ $$\displaystyle$$ $$\displaystyle \sin \left({2 m - \dfrac 1 2}\right) \pi$$ $$=$$ $$\displaystyle$$ $$\displaystyle -1$$ $$\displaystyle$$ $$\displaystyle$$

## Proof

From the discussion of Sine and Cosine are Periodic on Reals, we have that:

$\sin \left({x + \dfrac \pi 2}\right) = \cos x$

The result then follows directly from the Cosine of Multiple of Pi.
