Homework Help: Solving equations and finding solution set

  1. Oct 11, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Solve the equation in the interval [0,2∏)
    3 sinx-6 = sinx-5

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I originally tried to set it equal to zero and then divide by the 3 and then factor out the sinx but I didn't think that made any sense? HELP!

    suppose sin(x) was called X. How would you then solve the problem?
