9-155.
  1. For each equation, find two solutions 0 < x < 2, which make the equation true. No calculator necessary. Homework Help ✎

    1. tan x = square root of 3 over 3

    2. sin x = 0

    3. cos x = square root of 2 over 2

What angle has the cosine of negative one half? Think of 30°, 60° right triangles.

x = 120° or 240°

Now convert the angles into radians.

See part (a).

If sin(x) = 0, y = 0

x = 0

Remember the side ratios of 45° right triangles.
