Solving Trigonometric Equations Exactly
Hi, I'm new here. I'm a homeschooled senior in my last leg of pre-graduation math stress. Stupidly, I decided to take a pre-calculus class, and found out exactly how far it is beyond my scope of learning capability the hard way.
Anyway, I need help!
Solve exactly. 4sin^2x -3=0, 0 greater than or equal to x, x less than 2pi.
Sorry for not using the proper signs, I'm not sure where to find them on the keyboard. By "pi", I mean Pi. Not just two random variables strung together.
And please, don't think I haven't done any work on this problem--I've spent the last two days trying to find a page in my textbook that will shed light upon the matter, to no avail. None of the examples quite match the construction of this problem, and after flying through a myriad different starting points, all of which became tangled, I'm still just as lost as if I'd never started. It's the only reason I'm not showing any work. :P
