12-55.

Solve each equation for 0

^{°}≤ θ < 360^{°}. Homework Help ✎2sin

*θ*= −1cos

^{2}*θ*+ 5cos*θ*+ 4 = 0

Now use what you remember about the unit circle to solve for θ. Remember that there may be more than one solution.

Treat cosθ as you would *x* and factor. Now set the factors equal to zero. Note that instead of having *x* = something, you will have cosθ = something.

If cosθ = −1, θ = ?
