Quad,breaking the middle term or completing the square method?

breaking the middle term.. you would get (2t1)(t+1)=0 where t=sin(x/2)

so 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..

@yrelhan4 since \(\displaystyle 0 \leq x \leq 360\) then \(\displaystyle 0 \leq \frac{x}{2} \leq 180\)
 one year ago

sirm3d Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
now, \(\sin x/2 = 1/2\) therefore \(x/2=30, 150\) or \(x=60, 300\)
