Hello! Can someone please check and see if I did this right? Thanks! :)


Directions: Find the exact solutions of the equation in the interval [0,2pi]

cos2x+sinx=0

My answer:

cos2x+sinx=cos^2x-sin^2x+sinx
=1-sin^2x-sin^2x+sinx
=-2sin^2x+sinx+1=0

asked by Maggie
  1. that is not an answer. It is a restatement of the problem, using only sines.

    2sin^2x-sinx-1 == 0
    (2sinx+1)(sinx-1) = 0
    sinx = -1/2 or 1, so
    x = π/2, 4π/3, 5π/3
