i've been staring at this question for the past two hours with no luck, so i have finally resigned to TSR!
I know what the answer is, but an explanation would be great.
Much thanks

Solve the equation 2sin2(feta) + 3cos2(feta) = 1 for 0-360

I managed to rearrange the equation into rsin(2(feta)+(alpha)) but got no further..

If you did it correctly than

rsin(2(theta)+(alpha)) =1

=> sin(2(theta)+(alpha)) = 1/r

=> 2theta + alpha = arcsin(1/r)

By solve the equation it meant find the roots from the graph. Which i for some reason was unable to do.
