y= 2sin^2 x
y=1- sinx

find values of x inthe interval 0<x<360

if
2sin^x = 1-sinx
this can be arranged into the quadratic.

2sin^2 x + sin x -1=0

(2sinx -1)(sinx + 1)=0
or sinx = 1/2 and sin x=-1

    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

    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,
