cot(x) + 3cot(2x) - 1 = 0

Hello this question looked straight forward enough, but I'm stuck and would really appreciate some help.

Solve on the interval

I tried writing it in terms of and

And got this;

, among various similar equations.

I have worked on from here a bit, but can't seem to get it in terms of a trigonometric equation I can then solve. I'd really appreciate it if somone would tell me if I'm on the right track and should keep going or if I need to approach the question in a different way.

Thank you very much.

Hey Furyan! :)

How about writing it in terms of and ?

Hi ILikeSerena,

Thanks, I'll try that:)

Hi ILikeSerena:)

Thank you very much indeed, that worked! I would never have gone that way if you hadn't suggested it. Although in the end it was simple, it took me rather a long time to get there.

I got:

Then I used:

And ended up with:
