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
