    For 10 i) can't you square root then use the cos-1 () function?

    Both of these lead to standard angles
    i)  \cos \theta = \pm \frac{\sqrt 3}{2} .

    ii)  \tan \theta = \pm \sqrt 3 .
    Just use symmetry and periodicity of the cos and tan curves to find the other values in the range specified.
    All the answers are rational multiples of  \pi so you get nice answers.

    Same principal for 10ii) where you add 3, square root and tan-1 ()? Just a suggestion cause this doesn't look like GCSE maths and so I can't really definitely talk about higher maths

    They can, but there may be additional solutions within that range, so it may be best to think geographically or use the CAST diagram or whatever method you normally use.

    But it does say for 0 <= theta <= 2pi. Sorry I haven't helped much forget me.

    Yeah I noticed the range afterwards

    I think I was just being a bit stupid, this has really helped, thank you
