Dear student,
We have:
sin\left ( x \right )sin\left ( 2x \right )sin\left ( 3x \right )=2sin^{2}\left ( x \right )cos\left ( x \right )\left ( 3sin\left ( x \right ) \right-4sin^{3}\left ( x \right ) )=6sin^{3}\left ( x \right )cos\left ( x \right )-8sin^{5}\left ( x \right )cos\left ( x \right )On maximising this, we get the maximum value of sin(x) as equal to:
sin\left ( x \right )=\sqrt{\frac{8\pm \sqrt{10}}{12}}
This gives the required result.
Thanks & Regards
