Find a, b parameters such that the function such that the function $f(x)= (sin2x)/(a-bcosx)$ has extreme value in point (pi/3,1/4)

I understand that in this point the derivative should be 0. So I found the derivative ,equaled to zero and I replaced (pi/3=x) . But I'm not sure, should I equal the function with 1/4 to find the ordiante ?

using only sinx = π/3 will only give you the ratio a/b

you need to use y = 1/4 to find what they actually are

Thank you very much tiny-tim. I found now the paramters. a=5 and b=4.
