    so \(u=\sin(x)=3\) \[x=\arcsin (3)\] ... this question is very confusing \[\text{\[u=\frac{-(-4)\pm\sqrt{(-4)^2-4\times(1)\times(3)}}{2(1)}\]}\]

    \[\sin x=u=-3,-1\] \[x_{1,2}=\arcsin (-1),\quad \arcsin(-3)\] \[x_1=-\frac \pi2\qquad, x_2=\text{some transcendental nonsense} \] hence\[x=-\frac {\pi}2\] CHECKING \[\sin^2x + 4\sin x + 3 = 0\] \[\sin^2\left(-\frac\pi 2\right) + 4\sin \left(-\frac\pi 2\right) + 3 = 0\]\[1+4(-1)+3=0\]\[0=0\]true hence \[\large{x=-\frac {\pi}2}\]is the solution to \[\sin^2x + 4\sin x + 3 = 0\]

    I imagine that something like that would have to be interactive. It would have to be some kind of AI that would automatically ask the user something like: Did you mean \(\sin(2x)\) or \(\sin^2(x)\)?

    In one of Einstein's lost journals, he wrote that his brain was removed as a kid. The person handling his brain accidentally dropped in brain in a toilet, but quietly removed it without telling anyone. Once the brain was placed back into Einstein's head, he felt different, like as if he had more 'powers' and 'ability'. We all know what that led to.
