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

Basically I am finishing of a projectile question and I get stuck here:

Trying to find [itex] \theta [/itex]

[tex] \frac{1}{2} (sin2 \theta) tan^2 \theta -tan \theta + \frac{1}{2} sin2 \theta = 0[/tex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I tryed spliting [itex] tan \theta [/itex] into [itex] \frac{sin \theta}{cos \theta} [/itex] but I don't really get anywhere.

I know it requires using a trig identity but I can't really see a suitable one.

Thanks for the help in advance!!
