  1. how about
    sin2x = -cos2x, now divide by cos2x
    sin2x/cos2x = -1
    tan2x = -1
    so 2x = 135 or 315º
    so x = 67.5 or x = 157.5º

    now remember that the period of tan(kß) is 180/k

    so the period of tan2x is 90º, which means that if we add 90º to any of our answers we get a new answer as long as we are in our given domain.

    so x = 67.5, 157.5, 247.5, 337.5

    again, it would be a good idea to check these with your calculator.

    how would you solve for y in this problem: x=(y^2+3y)^(1/3) would it equal: y= x^3/y - 3 ? and what about this problem: x= 1/[(y^2+3y-5)^3] would it equal: y = y/x + 5/y - 3? I would appreciate your help very much! Your equation
