Reason: missed part
Follow Math Help Forum on Facebook and Google+
Cos^2(x) = Sin^2(x) + 1/2
Cos^2(x) - Sin^2(x) = 1/2
Cos(2x) = 1/2
2x = Cos^-1(1/2)
x = (Cos^-1(1/2))/2
In fact, it's...
pi/6, 5pi/6, -pi/6, -5pi/6

Hello, meli3000! Solve the following system of equations algebraically . . . .
Substitute into : . . .
Ah yeah forgot that because it's double you get 2 more answers. Oops!
