Solve for θ sin 3θ - Sin 2θ - sin θ = 0 Solve for x √3tan x - sec x - 1 = 0 Solve: 1 + cos 2θ = - cosθ Solve sinθ2 - cosθ = 0 Solve 5 sinθ cosθ = 1 Solve 3sin²θ - sinθ = 1/4 Please thanks I will be very thankful.

For this one, what values of theta here do you think will cause the statement to be true?

Can you finish from there? Multiplying √3tan x - 1 = sec x by (1/2)cos x gives cos(x - 2$\pi$/3) = cos($\pi$/3), so x - 2$\pi$/3 = ±$\pi$/3 + 2k$\pi$, where k is an integer. Can you finish from there? 1 + cos 2θ = - cosθ implies 2cos²θ = - cos θ, so cos θ = 0 or -1/2. Can you finish from there? I didn't understand your equation sinθ2 - cosθ = 0. 5 sinθ cosθ = 1 implies sin 2θ = 2/5. What progress can you make from that? 3sin²θ - sinθ = 1/4 implies 3(sin θ + 1/6)(sin θ - 1/2) = 0, so sin θ = - 1/6 or 1/2. Can you finish from there?
