    Cos(x) (2Sin(x)Sin(x))=1

    hm lets try this (2Sin(x)Cos(x)Sin(x)) = Cos(x) divide both sides by cos x then (2Sin(x)Sin(x)) = 1 can you continue from here?

    (2Sin(x)Sin(x)) = 1 multiplying 2[Sin(x)]^2 = 1

    ok from here 2[Sin(x)]^2 = 1 [Sin(x)]^2 = 1/2

    ok then Sin(x)^2 = 1-Cos(2x)/2 Right?

    nope, use power of i/2 on both sides from [Sin(x)]^2 = 1/2 ([Sin(x)]^2)^1/2 = sqrt(1/2) correct? yes or no?

    How would this make it solve so i get answers to the unit circle?

    ([Sin(x)]^2)^1/2 = sqrt(1/2) \[\sin x=\sqrt{\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }}=\frac{ 1 }{ \sqrt{2} }*\frac{ \sqrt{2} }{ \sqrt{2} }=...?\]

    although this seems not right there should be more to this.... because i thought.... Sin(2x)Sin(x)=Cos(x) Sin(2x)Sin(x)-Cos(x)=0 2Sin(x)Cos(x)Sin(x)-Cos(x)=0 Cos(x)(2Sin(x)Sin(x))=1 Then Maybe..... Cos(x)(2Sin(x)Sin(x))=1 Cos(x)=1 and 2Sin(x)=1 and Sin(x)=1

    if it is then Cos(x)=1 has solutions 0 and 2pi 2Sin(x)=1 also as Sin(x)=1/2 solutions pi/6 and 5pi/6 Sin(x)=1 solution pi/2

    yesssssss thats right 2Sin(x)Cos(x)Sin(x)-Cos(x)=0 could be like Cos(x)[(2Sin(x)Sin(x))-1]=0 cos x=0 and 2Sin(x)Sin(x))-1=0 x= arc cos 0 x=90deg=pi/2 and for 2Sin(x)Sin(x))-1]=0 2Sin(x)Sin(x))=1
