    Red face Trig Equation

    Determine solutions for:

    (cosx)/(1 + sinx) + (1 + sinx)/(cosx) = 2 , in the interval x E [-2p,2p]

    The answer taken from the back of the book is: -2p, 0, 2p


    If someone could explain how to solve this equation, I'd really appreciate it! Thanks in advance

    What have you tried here?

    Maybe start by making a common denominator on the LHS.
