Maple soft, transcendental equations

Tags:

    Hello guys, I am new to maple software and I am stuck on solving a simple transcendental equation:

    sin(x)=x/2 over the range x=-3,...,3.

    I know how to solve this equation for individual intervals, for example:
    > fsolve(sin(x) = (1/2)*x, x = -3 .. -1);

    > fsolve(sin(x) = (1/2)*x, x = -1 .. 1);

    > fsolve(sin(x) = (1/2)*x, x = 1 .. 3);

    However I want to solve it, so that it outputs all of the three solutions at once:

    >fsolve(sin(x) = (1/2)*x, x = -3 .. 3);


    Is this possible?
    cheers
