Solve for x on the interval 0<= theta <= 2pi. Give exact solutions if possible. Otherwise round to the nearest hundredth of a radian.

2. Relevant equations

tan^2x-4tanx = 0

3. The attempt at a solution

Tried factoring it to (tanx-4)(tanx) = 0

tanx=4 or 0 I guess? Not sure where to go from there

or instead of factoring I could immediately make it sin/cos, which gives

(sin^2x - 4sincos) / (cos^2x) = 0
