    trick is to rewrite \[cos^2(x)= 1-sin^2(x)\]

    then get a quadratic equation in \[sin(x)\]

    \[2cos^2(x)+3sin(x)-3=0\] \[2(1-sin^2(x))+3sin(x)-3=0\] \[2-2sin^2(x)+3sin(x)-3=0\] \[-2sin^2(x)+3sin(x)-1=0\] \[2sin^2(x)-3sin(x)-1=0\]

    just solve as a quadratic. if it is easier to see replace sin(x) by z to get \[2z^2-3z+1=0\] \[(2z-1)(z-1)=0\] \[z=\frac{1}{2}\] or \[z=1\]

    then replace z by sin(x) and solve for x \[sin(x)=1\] \[x=\frac{\pi}{2}\]

    \[sin(x)=\frac{1}{2}\] \[x=\frac{\pi}{6}\] or \[x=\frac{5\pi}{6}\]

    there are two places on the interval from 0 to 2pi where sine is 1/2

    one is at \[\frac{\pi}{6}\] and the other is at \[\frac{11\pi}{6}\] so all together you have 3 answers. those two and also \[\frac{\pi}{2}\] where sine is 1
