find the exact solutions
the way it stands, that is a "nasty" question.
Are you sure the second term isn't 2sin(2x) ?
no, its as i wrote it.
then it's got me stymied, I must be missing something rather obvious, sorry!
thanks for trying!
2-2sin^2x + 3 sinx=0
sin^2 x - 3/2 sin x - 1=0
sinx= (3/2 +-sqrt(9/4 +4) /2
sinx= 3/4 +- 5/4
sin x= -1/2 works.
