    General solution of trigonometric function

    For any real numbers x and y. Sinx = siny implies n\pi + (-1)^ny, where n \in Z



    If sinx = siny, then sinx -siny = 0
    or 2cos\frac{x+y}{2}sin\frac{x-y}{2} = 0

    \Rightarrow cos\frac{x+y}{2} = 0 ; sin\frac{x-y}{2}=0



    Therefore \frac{x+y}{2} = (2n+1)\frac{\pi}{2}  or \frac{x-y}{2} = n\pi, where n \in Z



    i.e. X = (2n+1)\pi -y or x = 2n\pi +y, where n \in Z


    Please guide further.....

    Re: General solution of trigonometric function

    since you have found (x+y)/2 and (x-y)/2 make two similtaneous equations and solve them for x ,y it is easy .
