Use a Double- or Half-Angle Formula to solve the equation in the interval [0, 2π) : tan θ + cot θ = 4 sin 2θ

    Hmm... \[tan θ + cot θ\]\[= \frac{sinθ}{cosθ}+\frac{cosθ}{sinθ} =...?\]

    I did that and after that I got: \[\frac{ \sin \theta ^{2}+\cos \theta^2 }{ \cos \theta \sin \theta }=4\sin^2\]

    after that: \[\frac{ 1 }{ \cos \theta \sin \theta} =4\sin2\theta \]

    2cosθsinθ = sin2θ Divide both sides by 2 cosθsinθ = ...?

    Multiply both sides by sin2θ, what do you get?

    so I take the square root?? and get sin(\[\sin\frac{ \sqrt{2} }{ 2 }=2\theta \]

    \[cos2x = 1-2sin^2x\]\[2sin^2x = 1-cos2x\]Replace x by 2θ. Life isn't difficult then.

    Hmm... Something's wrong there. \[1=2\sin ^{2}2\theta\]\[sin^2 2\theta = \frac{1}{2}\]\[sin2\theta = \pm \sqrt{\frac{1}{2}}\]So, \[sin2\theta = \sqrt{\frac{1}{2}}\]or \[sin2\theta = -\sqrt{\frac{1}{2}}\]

    i noticed something, since the square root was taken to take out the squared sine....then the result needs to be +- \[\pm \frac{ \sqrt{2} }{ 2 }\]

    To avoid taking square root, I prefer using my method: \[1=2\sin ^{2}2\theta\]\[1=1-cos4\theta\]\[cos4\theta =0\]Then. solve theta.

    From zero to pi, yes... keep going to 2pi... 4 more solutions.

    The interval described is 0 to 2pi... so all of the answers that exist between 0 and 2pi are what you are looking for.

    If you want to get the next 4 solutions, use: 2pi - solution you've got. Then you'll have 4 more. Eg: 2pi - (pi/8)

    My only concern is... was that interval stated as [0, 2pi] or [0, 2pi) ? You have said each through the course of this chat.

    hahaha thanks. the reason why I didn't keep going is because in the previous problems I had, if it was divided by 3 theta I would only give 6 answers. If if was divided by 4theta, then 8 answers, so I would assume that in this excercise that's divided by 2theta I would only give 4 answers.
