ok say instead of 26/27 it was 3/2.

how can you solve it for an exact soln? w/o using any approximating methods - August 2nd 2009, 02:38 AMsimplependulum

i plot this one: y = (16/81)^(sin^2 x) + (8/9)^(cos^2 x) for x =0 to pi radian. In my graph it looks like this, any comments?

and this one, (16/81)^(sin^2 x) + (8/9)^(cos^2 x) = 26/27; what does it mean?
