Calculate (sin x)^2 + sin (2x)=0?

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles


We know that sin2x= 2sinx*cosx

==> (sinx)^2+2sinx*cosx=0

==> sinx(sinx+2cosx)=0

Then sinx=0   or  sinx+2cosx=0

First sinx=0

==> x= n*pi , (n=0,1,2,...)

For the other part:


==> sinx=-2cosx

==> sinx/cosx= -2

==> tanx=-2

==> x= (n+1)pi-arctan 2

Theb x values are: {n*pi, (n+1)*pi-arctan 2}
