  1. Use the relation
    cos²(x)=1-sin²(x)
    to convert the equation to a quadratic in sin(x).

    Solve for the value of sin(x), say s1 and s2 and reject any impossible roots such as |s|>1.

    For the remaining root(s), solve for
    sin(θ)=s. There should always be two values of θ (0≤ θ<360°)for each valid value of s, where -1≤s≤+1.
