(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The curve:

y = sqrt3cosx + sinx

a) Express the equation of the curve in the form y = RSin(x+a), where R and a are constants, R > 0 and 0 < a < pi/2

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I dont like these nasty R ones. Can someone walk me through please, point me in the right direction and give me tips :) Thanks :)
