    Within what range of x? And have you checked what I posted to this problem in the other thread?

    Well this is easily solvable as long as you remember these 2 identities:

    [tex]\sin 2 \theta \equiv 2 \cos \theta \sin \theta[/tex]

    and:

    [tex]\tan \theta \equiv \frac{\sin \theta}{\cos \theta}[/tex]
