cos(2x)+2cos(x)=0
can you show me how to do this? Thanks!

Thus
This is a quadratic. Let y = cos(x):
Using the quadratic formula I get:
Thus
Now. so we need to take the positive sign. As it happens the result doesn't seem to have a nice form, so:
. Since this angle is second quadrant, we also get an angle .
