    have you subbed \(\sin^2 x x = 1-\cos^2 x\) into the eq to simplify it into a quadratic eq?

    subbing, you should get, \(2-2\cos^2 x + 9 \cos x +3=0\) which equals, \(-2\cos^2 x + 9 \cos x +5=0\) let u = cos x the equation becomes \(-2u^2 + 9 u +5=0\) which is a quadratic equation of u. You can use the general formula to solve for u.
