It is odd that the stated interval for is given in radians, yet the roots are given in degrees. Anyway, we are told:
which means:
From the given equation, we find:
hence:
The final line of my attempt contains the 2 answers listed in the book, but I'm not sure what the basis for excluding all the other values under is? I have a feeling my approach is slightly incorrect here. Can anyone help me clear this up?
