    Would I use the quadratic formula to find the roots of 3sin^2x−5sinx+1=0?

    \[\frac{ 3\pm \sqrt{5}}{ 2 }\] But then what? I can't isolate for x, can I?

    sin x = (3+sqrt5)/2 or sin x = (3-sqrt5)/2

    So would I find the arcsin of (3+sqrt5)/2 and (3-sqrt5)/2 for x?

    Can't be the first one because sin can't be bigger than 1.

    so sin x = .3820
