The thing is that my book states that I can solve this one partly exact.

That is for half of the inifinite solutions.

But I can get nothing of this, no exact solutions at all.

Where am I wrong?

Thanks in advance.

that's in radians obviously.

That's what I've figured from it but I'm not 100% sure if I'm right but it looks right to me. - Aug 29th 2006, 04:49 AMCaptainBlackQuote:

Next time I'll do it right.

Speaking of LaTeX, this will make things a little neater:

Hello, a4swe!

Am I missing something important?

. . I found**all**the solutions . . .

And I have*no idea*what your book means by "exact" solutions.

Why introduce fractions? . . . Don't you*hate*them as much as I do?

We have: .

Factor: .

And solve:

. .

. .

. . . and thosethe exact solutions.*are*
