The question says find exact solution algebraically of 5sintheta+2root3=root3+3sin theta

I tried combining like terms 3sintheta and 5 sin theta and got 2sintheta on the left but dont know about the right side, and then what do I do next to solve this??? HELP

It is not as hard as you think. Just use:

$$5x + 2y = y + 3x$$

and then substitute $x=sin\theta$ and $y = \sqrt{3}$
