Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1When in doubt, draw a sketch: dw:1357770541986:dw The sketch is for 0<=x <=2pi. The general solution requires the form x=.... +2k pi where k is an integer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You will need to solve for sin(x)=cos(x) between 0 and 2pi. The same solution will be valid if you add 2k pi to the obtained solution. Are you able to find the solution between 0 and 2pi?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Looking at the unit circle is another way to do it if you've learned that. When are the cos and sin values identical?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont have a answer like that it is just pi/4 +2npi and 7pi /4 + 2npi. the answer with 5pi/4 + 2npi is paired with 3pi/4 + 2npi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know what the question is exactly but the solution to sinx=cosx is definitely x=pi/4 +2npi and x=5pi/4 + 2npi
