Can anyone help solve the below for 'a'(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

0=b(ycos(a)-bcos(2a)+xsin(a))

I've reduced it to

b=ycos(a)+2sin(a)sin(a)+xsin(a)

=sin(a)(cot(a)+2sin(a)+x)

Which I think is right, but I can't get any further without just ending up with different forms that appear more complex.
