solve algebriaclly the equation y=2sin2x+1 for 0<_x_<180. when solved find the x coordinates of the roots.

I am assuming you are trying to solve

2sin2x+1 = 0

sin 2x = -1/2

(angle in standard position is 30º)

the sine is negative in quadrants III and IV

so x = 180+30 = 210

or x = 360-x30 = 330

Btw, don't shout!

When you type in all-caps, two things happen:

**it's harder to read, and

**it's the online equivalent to SHOUTING (considered rude behavior).

Please just type in regular mode, not with the Caps Lock feature turned on. Thanks.

my last couple of lines should have been

so 2x = 180+30 = 210

or 2x = 360-x30 = 330

so x = 105 or x = 165

since the period of sin 2x is 180º

two other solutions are 285º and 345º

check: 2sin(2x345) + 1 = 0
