cos 4 x  cos 2 x = 0 2cos^2 2x1  cos 2x = 0 2u^2 u 1 = 0 (u1)(2u+1) = 0 u = 1; u = 1/2 cos 2x = 1 ; cos 2x = 1/2 2x = 0 ; 2x = pipi/3, 2x = pi + pi/3 x = 0 + npi; x = pi/3 + npi, x = 2pi/3 + npi x = 0, pi; x = pi/3, 4pi/3, x = 2pi/3, 5pi/3 so solutions will be : x = 0, pi/3, 2pi/3, 4pi/3, 5pi/3, pi looks you got the same solutions wid very less effort... !
