Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2tan(x)*sec(x)  2*tan(x) = 0 tan(x)*[ sec(x)  2 ] = 0 tan(x) = 0 or sec(x)  2 = 0 tan(x) = 0 or sec(x) = 2 tan(x) = 0 or 1/cos(x) = 2 tan(x) = 0 or cos(x) = 1/2 I'll let you finish up

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jim_thompson5910 okay i understand.. so with that being said.. they're will be 3 different solutions, and they would be 0+kpi 2kpi + pi/3 2kpi + 5pi/3 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the kpi solution is for sin x=0 and the other two ae for sec x=2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's been a while since I've done this but you have to be in radian mode and add or subtract 2pi or something

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2they made a typo they should have 2k*pi and not just 2k

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2when you wrote `0+kpi ` `2kpi + pi/3` `2kpi + 5pi/3` you have all 3 correct

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.25pi/3 is coterminal to pi/3, so either works

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when you solve it, you get sin x=0 and sec x=2 so you get the answer as given
