Good start. There are probably simplier ways, but I'm a fan of being systematic. I always want to be dealing with the same angle in all my trig functions. I'd use the double-angle identities for both sine and cosine, then simplify and factor so I could use the zero product property to solve:
Applying the zero product property...
and...
and
Solve these (don't forget that you'll get multiple solutions like above with the cosine - then limit them to your interval).
Follow the same procedure for this problem. Get all the angles the same in your trig functions, then use the zero product property to solve. With the cosine double-angle identity, use instead of the other versions so that you'll have something to factor out (the ) once you get it equal to zero.
Ok for the first one, on the second part I got up to , but there is now special angle that has a sine value of ...what would I do next?
Then for the other one of the first equation, I got , which would be ...would that be right? Do i have to add the ?
And for the second problem, I got ...and then I'm stuck as I can't seem to figure it out. Help?
