In these cases, the equations were of the form T (x) = c where T (x) is some circular function, x is a real number (or equivalently, an angle measuring x radians) and c is a real number ostensibly in the range of T .1 We summarize how to solve these equations below. Strategies for Solving Basic Equations Involving Trigonometric Functions To solve equations of the form T (x) = c • If T (x) = cos(x) or T (x) = sin(x), solve the equation for x on [0, 2π ) and add integer multiples of the period 2π . NOTE: If the arccos...
