**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 29, 2013 at 10:41pmI don't know if you are supposed to do this by simply substiting, or actually solve the equation.

I will solve it

2sinx + 4cos 2x = 3

2sinx + 4(1 - 2sin^2 x) -3=0

2sinx + 4 -8sin^2 x - 3 = 0

8sin^2 x - 2sinx -1 = 0

sinx = (2 ± √36)/16 = 1/2 or -1/4

x = 30° or 150° or x = 194.4775..° or 345.522°

so to the nearest degree I got

x = 30, 150, 194 and 346

I see only two of these in your list, so the others don't work
