    \[2\cos (x)=\sqrt{3}\cot (x)\]

    I wrote cot(x)=cos(x)/sin(x)

    ..... ok can you tell me what is th sin invers of \[\sin^{-1}( \frac{ \sqrt{3} }{ 2 })\]

    It is pi/3 and 2pi/3 between 0 and 2pi

    How you got 2pi/3

    I did pi - pi/3 because sin is also positive in that quadrant

    yes exactly.. so when we find inverse if get more values we take the lesser value usually.. for example 7pi/3 is also giving same answer but by using the concept above answer will b what?

    so i need to write, pi/3, 2pi/3, 7pi/3, 8pi/3, 13pi/3, 14pi/3 .......

    wouldn't 2cos(x) = sqrt(3)cot(x) if cos(x) = 0 also

    ok...... asuming a fuction itself is zero may not lad you to corrct ansewr... also... here the cos (x) cancels each other (ofcourse before assuming it zero) hence assuming cos (x) = 0 is wrong..
