**Jai**, Thursday, May 24, 2012 at 12:05amrecall that

sin^2 x + cos^2 x = 1

therefore, we use this substitute the sin^2 x at the right side of equation:

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

cos(x) = -cos^2 x

cos(x) + cos^2 (x) = 0

factoring,

cos(x) [1 + cos(x)] = 0

*for cos(x) = 0, the x values allowed are π/2 and 3π/2.

*for (1 + cos(x)) = 0 or cos(x) = -1, the x value allowed is π.

therefore,

x = π/2, π, 3π/2

hope this helps~ :)
