2sin^2x-3sinx=-1

sin^2x-3sinx=-1/2 times -3

sq. root of (sin^2x)+sinx= sq. root of 3/sq. root of 2

sinx+sinx=(sq. root of 3 times sq. root of 2)/2

2sinx=(sq. root of 3 times sq. root of 2)/2)) times 1/2

(sq. root of 3 times sq. root of 2)/sq. root of 4))=sinx

1. 2sin^2(x)-3sinx=-1
2sin^2(x)-3sinx+1=0
(2sinx-1)(sinx-1)=0
2sinx=1 or sinx=1
sinx=1/2 or sinx =1
x=30, 150 or x=90

find the exact solutions 2cos^2x+3sinx=0 the way it stands, that is a "nasty" question. Are you sure the second term isn't 2sin(2x) ? no, its as i wrote it. then it's got me stymied, I must be missing something rather obvious,

Please take a look at DEVON's trig equation at 9:14 I must be missing something obvious. If the second had been 3sin 2x it would be a straight forward question. The way it stands I was able to "reduce" it to the equation 8sin^4 x

the problem is 2cos^2x + sinx-1=0 the directions are to "use an identity to solve each equation on the interval [0,2pi). This is what i've done so far: 2cos^2x+sinx-1=0 2cos^2x-1+sinx=0 cos2x + sinx =0 1 - 2sin^2x + sinx = 0

Solve the equation on the interval [0,2pi). 2sin^2x-3sinx+1=0 (2sinx+1)(sinx+1) I don't think I did the factoring correctly. When I multiply it out to double check I get 2sin^2x+3sinx+1
