    can theta=0 ? Like is is\[ 0< \theta <\Pi\] Or \[ 0 \leq \theta \leq \Pi\] ?

    0<θ<2Π has to be between this interval

    @Mertsj what about if they have a log like for example using the graph solve the system y=-2x+3 and y=logx+1 im confused cause of the log

    well y=tan(theta/2) sin(thata)= 2y/(y^2+1) cos(theta)=(1-y^2)/(y^2+1) you know tan=sin/cos sec=1/cos plug things in and you will get an equation of y then go back y=tan)theta/2) and use the inverse

    Well it is 0 and 2 pi But if you noticed the interval is \[ 0 \leq \theta < 2\pi \]

    @RED123url well 2pi is not one the answers but 0 is, also according to the interval 2pi cannot be the answer..

    the real answer for these kind of problem involves n: the answer is 2npi. n can be 0 or any number even a billion

    @RED123url so would you agree that in this case the answer is 0?
