Precalc with Trig

posted by .

What value(s) of x from 0 to 2pi solve the following equation: cos squared x - cos x - 6 = 0

  • Precalc with Trig -

    cos^2 - cos - 6 = 0
    (cos-3)(cos+2) = 0
    cos = 3 or -2
    Bzzzt. |cos| <= 1, so not possible.

    If there's a typo, fix it and apply the same steps.
