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

1 - 2sinθ - 3cosθsinθ = 0

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

first i replaced cosθ with sprt(1 - sinθ) but that appears to give me a crazy algebra problem.

then i tried replacing 3cosθsinθ with 3cotθ(sinθ )^2 but that doesnt get me anywhere.

i must be forgetting something. is there an easy way to solve this? or am I just going to have to deal with the excessive algebra?
