Trig solve for all angles x problem

  1. Apr 19, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Solve for all angles x.

    2. Relevant equations
    Sin(2x)= 2sin(x)*cos(x)

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Not really sure what to do. I noticed that i could maybe factor out Sin(x), but i do not really know if that is right.

    I seem to be always stuck on these kind of problems. Any general tips would greatly help me as well. Thank you

    So you just used double angles to get rid of sin(2x) and cos(2x)?

    Yes I used double angles for them and I had to use the cos^2 identity also. I wish I could just scan my paper and upload it but no scanner.
