MHF 4U0 Name: 7.6 Solving Quadratic Trigonometric Equations To solve an equation which involves the square of a trigonometric ratio, we can apply the same skills we would use to solve a quadratic equation: (1) factoring (2) quadratic formula Don’t forget the rules for solving linear trigonometric equations – they will apply to solving quadratic trigonometric equations too: (1) Special Triangles (2) CAST Rule (3) Calculator (when the angle is not in a special triangle) (4) Check the period of the function to determine the number of solutions in the
