8sin^2x+sinxcosx+cos^2x=4

8sin^2x+sinxcosx+cos^2x=4(sin^2x + cos^2x)

8sin^2x+sinxcosx+cos^2x=4sin^2x + 4cos^2x

4sin^2x + sinxcosx - 3cos^2x = 0

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

sinx = -cosx or sinx = (3/4)cosx

sinx/cosx = -1 or sinx/cosx = 3/4

tanx = -1 or tanx = 3/4

x = 135°, 315° or x = 36.9° or 216.9°

if you want radians, change your calculator to rad
