# Thread: cos x = 2 sin x find all solutions between 0deg and 360deg

1. ## cos x = 2 sin x find all solutions between 0deg and 360deg

Find all solutions between 0deg and 360deg

cos x = 2sin x

Ive tried dividing both sides by sin x which gives me

cot x = 2

unsure how to proceed from here, i'm guessing x= something +360n

2. $\displaystyle cot\, x = 2$ can also be written as $\displaystyle tan\,x = \frac{1}{2}$

3. the answer is 26.5 then?

4. In a unit circle, other than the first quadrant, tangent is also positive in the 3rd quadrant.
