**drwls**, Monday, March 17, 2008 at 6:25amIs cos*2x supposed to mean cos^2 x?

Is 2ð supposed to mean 2 pi?

If so,

2 cos^2x - cos x -1 = 0

which factors into

(2 cos x +1)(cos x -1) = 0

The solutions occur where cos x = -1/2 or +1

If cos*2x means cos(2x), then

2[2 cos^2 x -1) - cos x -1 = 0

4 cos^2 x -cos x -3 = 0

(4 cosx +3)(cosx - 1) = 0

x is where cos x = -3/4 or +1
