Chapter 7 - 7.3 - Solving Trigonometric Equations - 7.3 Exercises - Page 530: 14


$x=\frac{7\pi}{6}+2n\pi$ and $x=\frac{11\pi}{6}+2n\pi$, where $n$ is an integer.

Work Step by Step

$3~sin~x+1=sin~x$ $2~sin~x=-1$ $sin~x=-\frac{1}{2}$ The period of $sin~x$ is $2\pi$. The solutions in the interval: $[0,2\pi)$ are: $x=\frac{7\pi}{6}$ and $x=\frac{11\pi}{6}$ Now, add multiples of $2\pi$ to each of the solutions: $x=\frac{7\pi}{6}+2n\pi$ and $x=\frac{11\pi}{6}+2n\pi$, where $n$ is an integer.
