Find all solutions to the equation in the interval [0,2pi)

Cosx-cos2x

  • calculus -

    I will assume your "equation" is
    cosx - cos 2x = 0
    cosx - (2cos^2 x - 1) = 0
    2cos^2 x - cosx - 1 = 0
    (2cosx + 1)(cosx - 1) = 0
    cosx = -1/2 or cosx = 1

    if cosx = -1/2 , then
    x = 2π/3 or x = 4π/3 , (120° or 240°)
    if cosx = 1 , then
    x = 0 or 2π , (0° or 360°)
