Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0cos (3x) = 1/2 We know that cos(x) =1/2 when x = Pi/6, so it must be Pi/18

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Solve 2cos(3x)1=0 for cos(3x) this gives you: cos(3x)=1/2 as software said previously, we know that cos(x)=1/2 @ x=pi/6 Using this x=pi/6, replace x with 3x: 3x=pi/6 (solve for x) Voila, x=pi/18; depending on your interval (ie 0<x<pi)
