Solve these equations graphically on the interval [0, 2*π*]. Sketch the graph and list the solutions.

sin(2*x*) – 1 = tan *x*

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

We graph the two functions: y=sin(2x)-1 in black and tan(x) in red and note the intersections on the interval `[0,2pi]` :

The intersections (from a graphing utility) are approximately :

`x~~2.0687813` and `x~~5.210374`
