    Do you know what's the identity for sin2x?

    2sinx+cosx+sinx=0 right? what do i do next?

    no, it should be from sin2x + sin x = 0 to 2sinxcosx + sin x =0 right?

    sinx(2cosx+1)=0 is this right? what do i do next? o.O

    yes, now you can let sinx=0 and 2cosx+1=0 then find the x values

    equate that to 0 and find x values

    so i got cosx=-1/2 how do i find the value of x?

    well you can do this cosx=-1/2 x=cos^{-1} (-1/2)

    so what are all possible values of x? 0 and......what else O.o

    you calculate cos^(-1) 1/2 first without minus on half you'll get 60 degrees

    then use this chart for cosine |dw:1358873950517:dw| we are looking at the minus side since we got minus half. then 180-60=120 degrees 180+60=240 degrees

    yes. so all the possible solutions will be pi, pi/3, 2pi/3?

    you still have sinx=0 to do

    since theta is 0, then you get 180

    @.Sam. so what are all solutions in the interval??
