**bobpursley**, Monday, December 5, 2011 at 5:32pmsquare both sides.

4sin^2= 1-2cos+cos^2

4(1-cos^2)=1-2cos+cos^2

now, gather terms, it is a quadratic, solve using the quadratic equation.

**piyush yadav**, Tuesday, December 6, 2011 at 1:27amthe previous ans. is wrong as if we sq. the eqn. it generates false solutions a better method is to divide coefficients of sin and cos by root of sq. of coeff.ofsin+sq. of coeff of cos . that is main pt. remaining we will proceed by making it an argument in cos . and then make general sol. and find no. of sol. or diff solutions by putting value of n in general solution
