    But I simplified that to \[\sin ^{2}x-3\sin x+1\]

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

    \[3sinx \times sinx-5\times sinx+\frac{1}{sinx}\times sinx=0 \times sinx\]

    \[\frac{ 3\pm \sqrt{5}}{ 2 }\] 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

    Does there happen to be a way I could solve this without using a calculator?

    If you have a table of values you could.
