factor out sin(θ)

sin(θ)(cos(θ)-2) = 0

Can you take it from here?

**Steve**, Saturday, October 22, 2011 at 6:20amWhen a product of factors is zero, one of the factors must be zero.

So, either

sin(θ) = 0 or cos(θ)-2 = 0

sin(θ) = 0 when θ = k*pi

cos(θ)-2 = 0 when cos(θ) = 2

but cos(θ) is always less than 1. No solution here.
