Hello,

I have a homework problem where I am trying to solve for x in the following equation:

sin(ax+b)=c

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

This is my answer:

x=[itex]\frac{arcsin(c)-b}{a}[/itex]

My question is, is this all I can do? Unless there is something I am neglecting, it seems fairly restrictive on what x can equal, due to the domain restrictions of the arcsin. Is there any other way of solving this without using arcsin?
