find all values of theta in the interval 0<theta<360 that satisfy the equation 3cos 2theta + 2 sin theta+1=0

  • Trigonometry - ,

    3cos^2 Ø + 2sinØ + 1 = 0
    3(1 - sin^2 Ø) + 2sinØ + 1 = 0
    3sin^2Ø - 2sinØ -4 = 0
    sinØ = (2 ± √28)/6
    = 1.215.. which is not admissable
    or
    sinØ = -.54858...
    so Ø is in III or IV
    the angle in standard position is 33.27°

    so Ø = 213.27° or Ø = 326.73°
