10. Solve cos 2x – 3sin x cos 2x = 0 for the principal value(s) to
two decimal places.

12. Solve tan^2x + tan x – 1 = 0 for the principal value(s) to two
decimal places.

5.
since sin(pi/3) = √3/2
and sin < 0 in QIII,QIV, you have
x = (2k+1)*pi+pi/3 and 2k*pi-pi/3

10.
cos2x (1 - 3sinx) = 0
cos2x = 0 or sinx = 1/3

cos 2x = 0:
2x = k*pi/2 where k is an integer
x = pi/4, 3pi/4, 5pi/4, 7pi/4

sinx = 1/3:
x = 0.34 or pi-0.34

12.
tanx = 1/2 (-1±√5)
= .618 or -1.618

so take arctan to get x

19.
tan^2-1+cos^2
= sec^2-2+cos^2
= (sec-cos)^2
= (1-cos^2)^2/cos^2
= (sin^2)^2/cos^2
= sin^2/cos^2 * sin^2
= tan^2 sin^2

29.
tan*sin + cos
= sin^2/cos + cos
= (sin^2+cos^2)/cos
= 1/cos
= sec
