Trigonometric Equations with a Calculator Problem Set
1. In the interval 0° ≤ A ≤ 360°, solve for all values of
A in the equation cos 2A = −3sinA − 1.
6. Find all values of x in the interval 0° ≤ x < 360°
that satisfy the equation 3cos 2x = cos x + 2.
use of the grid is optional.]
2. Solve the following equation algebraically for all
values of θ in the interval 0° ≤ θ ≤ 180°.
2sin θ − 1 = 0
3. Find, to the nearest degree, all values of θ in the
interval 0° < θ < 360° that satisfy the equation
3cos 2θ + sin θ − 1 = 0.
4. Find, to the nearest degree, all values of θ in the
interval 0° ≤ θ ≤ 180° that satisfy the equation
8cos 2 θ − 2cos θ − 1 = 0.
7. What value of x in the interval 0° ≤ x ≤ 180°
satisfies the equation 3 tanx + 1 = 0?
5. Find all values of θ in the interval 0° ≤ θ ≤ 360°
that satisfy the equation 3cos 2θ + 2sin θ + 1 = 0,
and round all answers to the nearest hundredth of a
degree. [Only an algebraic solution can receive
