Simplify and Solve the Following Trigonometric Equation

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\cos^2 x - 3\cos x - 2\sin x +2 =0 [/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I've changed the expression, but it doesn't seem any better...

I've got [tex]\frac{\cot x \cdot (\cos (x) -3)}{2}=1 - \csc x[/tex]

But that doesn't seem to help me at all...Stuck badly.
