    its from the heinemann book, review exercise 1, q 4

    solve for 0<=x<=360 the equation

    2cos(x+50)=sin(x+40)

    solve for 0<=x<=2π the equation

    cos2x = 2sin^2 x

    This is easy to solve by P3 methods, you dont do compound angle forumla in P2 do you?

    Use cos 2x = 1 - 2sin^2 x:

    1 - 2sin^2 x = 2sin^2 x

    => 4sin^2 x = 1

    => sin^2 x = 1/4

    => sin x = +-(1/2)

    Go from there.

    2cosxcos50-2sinxsin50=sinxcos40+cosxsin40
    2cos50-2tanxsin50=tanxcos40+sin40
    so 2cos50-sin40=tanx(cos40+2sin50)
    so tan x= (2cos50-sin40)/(cos40+2sin50)
    so x= tan-1 of all that

    NOOOOO i was just about to post as well...i think it is impossible in fact almost certain...if u put in the 'solutions' from the back the equations dont work

    I asked about that question a while ago. There's a printing error in the question, and we were trying to work out what it should have said, but we couldn't. So I'm afraid you'll just have to leave that question. Normally, the methods involve getting rid of the logs and sovling simultaneously like normal.

    yes, I get the pairs of solutions (3,1) and (1/3,9).

    substitute them into the first eqn lgx+lgy=1000
    welll lgx+lgy=lg(xy) , so lg(xy)=1000.
    if x=3 and y=1 then lg(3)=1000? no.
    and if x=1/3 and y=9 then again lg3=1000.

    Nope, they definitely work.

    do your working please

    lgx+lgy=lg3 (1)
    lg(3x+y)=1 (2)

    From (1): xy=3 ---> y=3/x

    lg(3x+y)=1, so 3x+y=10.

    3x+3/x=10
    3x^2-10x+3=0
    (3x-1)(x-3)=0
    x=1/3, x=3
    when x=1/3, y=9
    when x=3, y=1

    (and they worked when I checked them).

    from my book:

    (1) = lg x + lg y = 1000
