Prove the identity sin(x − 30◦ ) cos(x − 60◦ ) ≡ (√ 3)sin x. [3] (ii) Hence solve the equation sin(x − 30◦ ) cos(x − 60◦ ) = 1 2 sec x, for 0◦ < x < 360Can anyone help me with the second part to the question. I am a little stuck

Have you tried plugging in \sqrt3\sin x to the equation for the second part? That should clear the way a bit?

Alright well after doing that try to see if you can spot any easy trig identities you can use, but I think you are going to have to rearrange it a bit. So try to get the trig identities on the same side and the numbers on the other side and then see if you can spot an identity that works. Also, what is the coefficient of sec(x), is it 1.2?
