    Please could you help me with this trig question?

    solve for 0 < x < 360 degrees

    2sin(x) = cos(x+60)

    This is what i've got so far....

    cos(x+60) = cosx cos60 - sinx sin60

    i just can't see where i have to go with it next....


    Thanks :-)

    You know what cos (60) and sin(60) are, so you are left with an expression of sin(x) and cos(x). Get all the sin(x) terms on one side of the = and the cos(x) terms on the other side. Then divide by cos(x) to get something along the lines of tan(x) = ...

    Then just type it into the calculator. I got 9.9 and 189.9 but I may have made a mistake somewhere

    What the hell is that O.o The only sign I know is the Integral, Change in (d) and Pi.

    Oh and the number 0.

    What does that formula do.....

    What on earth is the upper bound for the inner integrand?

    That's a gaussian integral in polar, but with an extra factor of r right? If the extra r wasn't there it would just be (pi)^1/2 I think...
