## Homework Statement

I want to find the maximum of this function:

Y = sin(x) + sin(2x)

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

Attempted sin(2x) = 2sinx*cosx, tried to draw it, tried to go euler's formula, no luck whatsoever (of course I take the derivative!)

Mathematica gives me this:

FindMaximum[Sin[x] + Sin[2*x], {x, 0}]

Out[1]= {1.76017, {x -> 0.935929}}

Any ideas? It really seems simple, but I just can't figure it out...

Thanks!
