37. Find all values of θ in the interval 0º ≤ θ ≤ 360º that satisfy the equation sin2θ = sinθ.

38. The letters of any word can be rearranged. Carol believes that the number of different 9-letter rearrangements of the word “TENNESSEE” is greater than the number of different 7-letter rearrangements of the word “VERMONT.” Is she correct? Justify your answer.
