Solve the equation `(sin 3x)/2+(cos 3x)/2=sqrt 5`
1 Answer | add yours
The equation `(sin3x)/2+(cos3x)/2=sqrt 5` has to be solved
=> `sin3x+cos3x = 2*sqrt 5`
=> `sin^2 3x + cos^2 3x + 2*sin 3x*cos 3x = 4*5`
=> `1 + sin 6x = 20`
=> `sin 6x = 19`
This is not possible as sin 6x lies in [-1, 1]
The given equation does not have any solutions
