Homework Help: Trigo!

Posted by help! on Saturday, September 19, 2009 at 2:21am.

Ok, i did this maths trigo question, that says sinx-cos=2/3. I squared it on both sides to get sin2x=5/9 and did the sum. In the end i got two solutions, 16.9 and 73.1. However, when i substituted the answers back into the equation, only one of the 2 answers was correct! The other one didn't work out! Why is this so? I'm pretty sure both answers are correct, so what's going on? Please help!
