I remember learning an iterative method that gives the answer to trigonometric polynomials such as(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

sin(x)-0.7-0.611cosx = 0

where x is the angle in degrees.

The person who I learned this method from called it the method for solving transcendentals. Now I can't seem to find any information on this method, could anyone please enlighten me by providing the information?
