Hello,

How do you find the sin of 2020?

Do you mean 2020 degress or 2020 radians?  Since the sine function
repeats itself every 360 degrees, you can subtract any multiple of 360
from 2020 and take the sine of that angle.  In other words,

sin 2020 = sin 1660
sin 1300 = sin 220 degrees.
sin 220 = -sin 40 = -0.6428.

If you're dealing with radians, subtract multiples of 2pi from 2020.
be .0441.
