\[(3\sec^{2}(x)  4)(\sec^{2}(x)  2) = 0\] \[\sec^{2}(x) = \frac{4}{3} \space\vee\space \sec^{2}(x) = 2\] \[\cos^2(x) = \frac{3}{4} \space\vee\space \cos^2(x) = \frac{1}{2}\] \[1\sin^{2}(x) = \frac{3}{4} \space\vee\space 1\sin^{2}(x) = \frac{1}{2}\] \[\sin(x) = \sqrt{\frac{1}{4}} \space\vee\space \sin(x) = \sqrt{\frac{1}{2}}\]

I'm very sorry, I made a very stupid mistake: \[(3\sec^2(x) + 2)(\sec^2(x)  4) = 0\] \[\sec^2(x) = \frac{2}{3} \space\vee\space \sec^2(x) = 4\] \[\cos^2(x) = \frac{3}{2} \space\vee\space \cos^2(x) = \frac{1}{4}\] \[\sin^2(x) = \frac{5}{2} \space\vee\space \sin^2(x) = \frac{3}{4}\] There is no real inverse sine of 5/2, so only carry on with the latter: \[\sin(x) = \pm\sqrt{\frac{3}{4}} = \pm\frac{\sqrt{3}}{2}\] Please accept my apologies for the incorrect answer.
