  1. no ideas on any of these? Also you have some major typos and/or formatting issues.

    I'll do a couple. Maybe you can clean up the post and indicate where you get stuck on the others.

    #2
    cos 2x – 3sin x cos 2x = 0
    (1-3sinx)cos2x = 0
    so, either
    cos2x=0 ==> x = pi/4 or 3pi/4
    sinx = 1/3 ==> x=arcsin(1/3) or pi-arcsin(1/3)

    #3
    tan2 x + tan x – 1 = 0
    tanx = (-1±√5)/2
    so find arctan of those two values and recall that tan is positive in QI,QIII and negative in QII,QIV
