Can anyone help me solve these two problems

sin2x-1=0

2sinx cox-1=0 Then I am not sure how to proceed

sinxtanx-sinx=0

sinx (sinx/cosx)- sinx

Sinx^2/ cosx -sinxcosx/cosx I am not sure if I am doing this right?(Thinking)

It's easier not to expand.

Add 1 to both sides:

Take the arcsin of both sides:

Thanks for your help however the second function I am still having problem solving.

I narrowed it down to

sinx^2-sinx=0 factor sin

sinx(sinx-1)=0

sinx=0 sinx=1

x=0, 90,180,270,360 degrees? - March 1st 2011, 06:18 PMtopsquark
