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

Solve the equation 2 - cos^{2}x =sinx. Give the solution in the interval 0≤x≤360.

2. Relevant equations

sin^{2}x+cos^{2}x=1

I know for sin you take inverse. Then subtract that from 180. I believe those are basic angle then you +/- 360. ?

3. The attempt at a solution

I tried to manipulate it to work and solve but im not sure what else and then how to.

2 - cos^{2}x =sinx

2(1-cos^{2}x)=sinx

2(sin^{2}x)=sinx
