sinx(sinx+2cosx) = 0 What can you do now? think.
if a*b = 0, Either a = 0 or b = 0 Here, a = sinx and b = sinx + 2cosx
i don't think this is that easy

that is \(\sin(x)=0\) is easy enough to solve, you get \(x=n\pi, n\in \mathbb{Z}\) but i can't see a good way to solve \[\sin(x)=-2\cos(x)\]
\[sin^2x+2\ sin\ x\ cos\ x=0\] \[sin\ x(sin\ x+2\ cos\ x)=0\] \[(sin\ x+2\ cos\ x)=0\]
that is not to say you cannot do it, but it is going to take some work
the first thing you have to do to solve \[\sin(x)+2\cos(x)=0\] is to write it as a single function of sine
in general you can write \[a\sin(x)+b\cos(x)\] as \[\sqrt{a^2+b^2}\sin(x+\theta)\]
:'( i need help on mine
I kinda wonder if you could do \(\sin^2(x) + \sin(2x)=0\).
in this case you get \[\sin(x)+2\cos(x)=\sqrt{5}\sin(x+\theta)\] where \(\tan(\theta)=2\)
tanx = -2 x = atan(-2) + n*(pi)
therefore \(x+\theta=n\pi\) gives \(\theta=n\pi-\tan^{-1}(2)\)
you can check that it is right by looking here
@ParthKohli i don't think that identity is going to help in this case you will have two arguments, one of \(x\) and the other of \(2x\) if you have a solution from that approach i would love to see it
oh I had forgotten this site Thanx @satellite73 for remembering :)
Gaahh @satellite73 you were right.
