Substitute in for the value of sin^2(x) You know what it is?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Substitute it where? I am still confused.
cgreenwade2000
  • cgreenwade2000
sin^2(x) can be put in terms of cos^2(x)
cgreenwade2000
  • cgreenwade2000
sin^2(x) = 1-cos^2 (x) Another really important one to remember. (I hope you're writing these important ones down, especially if you plan on going further in calculus)

then put cos x =y and you get a Quadratic in 'y', which can be solved easily.

I wasn't going to suggest that.......but it makes it a lot easier. Go that route.
cgreenwade2000
  • cgreenwade2000
Don't forget to distribute when you substitute for sin^2(x)

wait so is the new equation\[4( \frac{ 1 }{\cos^2x }) + 4 \sqrt{2}cosx-6=0\]
cgreenwade2000
  • cgreenwade2000
4(1-cos^2x).......

  • hartnn
actually, \[\huge \color{red}{\sin^2x+\cos^2x=1 \\ \implies \sin^2x =1-\cos^2x}\]

\[\huge \color{red}{\sin^2x+\cos^2x=1 \\ \implies \sin^2x =1-\cos^2x \\ \implies 4\sin^2x=4-4\cos^2x}\]

simplify that

Can you rewrite that? It is hard to read
hartnn
  • hartnn
\[4\sin^2x+4\sqrt{2} cosx-6=0 \\ 4-4\cos^2x+4\sqrt{2} cosx-6=0\\4\cos^2x-4\sqrt{2} cosx+2=0 \\put \cos x=y \\ \implies 4y^2-4\sqrt2y+2=0\] can you solve this quadratic ?
cgreenwade2000
  • cgreenwade2000
That should be a -2 @hartnn
hartnn
  • hartnn
u sure ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok so the answer is \[\frac{ \pi }{4 }+2\pi k, \frac{ 7\pi }{4 }+2\pi k\]
hartnn
  • hartnn
how did u get that ? what values of y u got ?

Im' sorry, I forgot to include the rest of the question...it is solve (that long equation) for all real values of x.
hartnn
  • hartnn
@Rosy95 what answer you wrote is correct. did you solve it by yourself ? and any doubts anywhere ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I solved it by myself but i looked at the answer choices when I got half of it.

Thanks everyone!
