Originally Posted by Lolcano So, I need help with this problem. Solve: cos 2 x(2 cos x+1) = 0 for 0 <= x < 360 Using the double angle trig identities, cos 2 x can be simplified to: 2 cos^2 x - 1 2 cos^2 x - 1(2 cos x + 1) Be careful, should be Expand this a make a substitution i.e. and solve for using the quadratic formula
