Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[(z+1)(z+2)=0\] \[z=1\] \[z=2\] \[\cos(x)=1\] \[\cos(x)=2\] second one is very unlikely

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\cos(2x)=\cos^2(x)\sin^2(x)=\cos^2(x)(1\cos^2(x))=2\cos^2(x)1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2\cos^2(x)1+3\cos(x)+2=0\] \[2\cos^2(x)+3\cos(x)+21=0\] \[2\cos^2(x)+3\cos(x)+1=0\] Can you factor? \[2u^2+3u+1=0\] (note the relationship is that u=cos(x))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[2u^2+2u+1u+1=0\] since 2u+1u=3u now we factor by grouping \[2u(u+1)+1(u+1)=0\] \[(u+1)(2u+1)=0\]
