3 Step solutions A

1) Solve 2Sin(x + 25) = 1.5

Sin(x + 25) = 0.75

x + 25 = Sin-1 0.75 = 48.6° so x = 23.6°

x + 25 = 180 – 48.6 = 131.4° so x = 106.4°

2) Solve 5Cos(x + 33) = 4.8

Let A = x + 33 so 5Cos(A) = 4.8

Cos(A) = 0.96

And x = A – 33

A = Cos-1 0.96 = 16.3° or A = 360 – 16.3 = 343.7

So x = 16.3 – 33 = -16.7° or x = 343.7 – 33 = 310.7°

But we need 2 solutions between 0 and 360!

Next highest solution for A is A = 360 + 16.3 = 376.3°

So x = 376.3° – 33 = 343.3° (or -16.7° + 360)

Solutions: x = 310.7° and 343.3°

3) Solve 2Tan(x – 25) = 8.34

Tan(x – 25) = 4.17

x – 25 = Tan-1 4.17 = 76.5° so x = 101.5°

x – 25 = 180 + 59.1 =256.5° so x = 281.5°

4) Solve 5 + Sin(x + 45) = 4.25

Sin(x + 45) = - 0.75

(Positive value) Sin-1 0.75 = 48.6°

x + 45 = 180 + 48.6 = 228.6° so x = 183.6°

x + 45 = 360 – 48.6 = 311.4° so x = 266.4°

5) Solve 0.5Cos(x + 32) + 4 = 3.85

0.5Cos(x + 32) = -0.15

Cos(x + 32) = -0.3

Cos-10.3 = 72.5°

x + 32 = 107.5° so x = 75.5

OR x + 32 = 252.5° so x = 220.5°

Multiple solutions A

1) Solve Sin(2x) = 0.6

Let A = 2x Sin(A) = 0.6

A = Sin-1 0.6 = 36.9°

and A = 180 – 36.9 = 143.1°

The next two solutions for A = 396.9° and A = 503.1°

So A = 36.9°, 143.1°, 396.9°, 503.1°

x = A ÷ 2 so x = 18.5° and 71.7° and 198.5° and 251.6°

Overview: Trig Equations

1) Rearrange the equation into the form

Sin A =

eg) Solve 5Sin(2πx) = 4

Sin(2πx) = 0.8

2) Find a solution to the trig equation

Where A = 2πx

Sin(A) = 0.8

A = Sin-1 0.8 = 0.927 radians

3) Find several solutions for ‘A’

Using graph or unit circle

A = π – 0.927 = 2.214 rad

4) Use ‘A’ to find solutions for ‘x’

A = 0.927 or 2.214

Use each ‘A’ to find ‘x’

x = 0.927÷2π= 0.148

Where A = 2πx so x = A ÷ 2π

x = 2.214÷ 2π= 0.352
