Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3breaking the middle term.. you would get (2t1)(t+1)=0 where t=sin(x/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so there would be 3 values of x/2 in 0 to 360.. 30,120,270. so x=60,240,540.. since you want from 0 to 360.. there would be 2 solns..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3if sin(x/2) = 1/2 , what is x? 0>x>360

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3look.. let x/2=k .. sin(k)=1/2 > k=30, 120.. > x=60, 240

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@yrelhan4 since \(\displaystyle 0 \leq x \leq 360\) then \(\displaystyle 0 \leq \frac{x}{2} \leq 180\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now, \(\sin x/2 = 1/2\) therefore \(x/2=30, 150\) or \(x=60, 300\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the other equation, \(\sin x/2 = 1\) has no solution in \(0 \leq \frac{x}{2} \leq 180\)
