Usually I'm fine with most of the graphing..but the trig always trips me up..
The problem:
Let f be the function defined for x is greater than or equal to pi/6 and x is less than or equal to 5pi/6. F(x)= x+sin^2(x)
a) Find all values of x for which f(x)=1
I did it on my calculator and got x is approximately 0.6417...by hand I tried to factor w/ 0=x+sin^2-1 but that was a fail...So is my answer exact enough, or how would I get the exact answer by hand?
b) Find the x-coordinates for all min points of f.
So I take the f'(x), which = 1+2sin(x)cos(x), then to simply that I got it down to -1=sin(2x). What do I do from here?
c) find the inflection pts...so I just take the second derivative right?
