**MathMate**, Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at 10:13pmasin(a)-1=0

asin(a)=1

a=(2k+1/2)π where k=integer

Use the graph of sin(x) to solve for a.

Note:

asin(a) does NOT equal 1/sin(a).

asin(a)=x means sin(x)=a

**Anonymous**, Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at 10:27pmI think I should restate this, I am trying to solve 0=1-a(sin(a). I didn't mean asin to mean arcsin, it's supposed to be a(sin(a)).

**MathMate**, Tuesday, June 5, 2012 at 11:35pmAre you doing Calculus or pre-calculus?

I believe that to solve for

sin(x)=1/x

requires numerical methods, such as Newton's method, or other approximation methods.

You can also plot sin(x) and 1/x and see where they intersect or as approximations.
