yep, or in the range x = a and x = b
I'll pretend you didn't say that or I'll die of confusion..

Thank you and thanks Sam

He is just saying that some fuctions go up and down. (like y = x2)

and a function can be defined as increasing within an certain interval like y = x2 in the interval between x = 1 and x = 6 is increasing, but between x = -5 and x = -1 it is decreasing.

(numbers just chosen at random to show the point, you could have had 65 and 108, and -47 and -32)

sin5x + sinx
= sin(3x + 2x) + sin(3x-2x)
= sin3xcos2x + sin2xcos3x + sin3xcos2x - sin2xcos3x
= 2sin3xcos2x = 0

2sin3x = 0 OR cos2x = 0
sin3x = 0
3x = arcsin0, 180°+arcsin0, 360° + arcsin0
3x = 0°, 180°, 360°
x = 0°, 60°, 120°

cos2x = 0
2x = arccos0, 360° - arccos0,
2x = 90°, 270°
x = 45°, 135°

x = 45°, 60°, 120°, 135°

Ignore the values 0° and 180° since they aren't in range.
Unless the range is 0</=x</=pi
Thanks Very Much!!!

I know it makes no difference here, but shouldn't it be: 180 - arcsin0 not + ?

hmm, yes it makes no difference.
but when θ is acute it lies in quadrant 1. tan θ is positive in quadrant 1 and quadrant 3, so tanθ = tan(180+θ)

I think you mean sinθ = sin(180 - θ).

nope I mean tan.
e.g. tan 20 = tan 200

Yes but in the question it is arcsin!

lol.

But you are correct with tanθ = tan(180 + θ).

Do you prefer C3 or C2?

i like them both equally.

I just go round and round in circles.

It looks like sometime you might use iteration for.

You get to: =>3xx = ex+1

And you find isolating the x impossible.

Damn I must be using the wrong approach then.

I have to prove that x = 1.66 to 3sf.

I've also got an interation formula which is xn+1 = (1/3)e^(1+(1/x)) where x0 = 2 but I dunno if that helps or anything.

Edit - Oh wait, does that mean I need to subsitute 1.66 into the equation to get a value that is close to 0?

I did a similar question yesterday. I'll just post the link.

You have to use iteration at c3 level. There's not another way that i'm aware of.
