    i need help with the question in this link
    i dont understand part b and c

    Idk which bit of b and c you specified so I'll just explain each bit.

    iii) and c

    4tan4xsin4x = 15

    Let's think of this as tan x, and sin x, and find those roots

    express tan x as sin x/cos x, multiply through by sin x to get 4sin^2x/cos x = 15, multiply through by cos x and use the sin^2 + cos^2 = 1 identity specific to this situation, you should obtain a disguised quadratic in cos x, the same quadratic you solved, the only thing left now is to divide your roots by 4, as this is 4x.
