Thus, you have,

Multiply both sides by a half to get,

But, and (double angles),

Notice the kills the other thus,

Thus,

Thus, all the solutions take the form,

Thus,

You need them to be such as,

For the example the top solution is true only for otherwise it gets too big or too small. Substituting for the top solution we get,

The bottom solution is true only for otherwise it gets too big or too small. Substituting for the bottom solution we get,

Thus,

but for the step

it is not given in the question sin 2x <> 0,

how come they could kill each other?

:confused:

is it possible if i 'lost' any solution? - Apr 19th 2006, 11:41 AMThePerfectHackerQuote:
