sin(x)cos(60°) + cos(x)sin(60°) = 2sin(x) tan(x)/2 + √3/2 = 2tan(x) sqrt(3) = 3tan(x) tan(x) = 1/√3 x = (30 + 180k)°, where k is an integer.

4cos²(x)  sin(2x  180°)= tan²(675$^\circ$) 4cos²(x) + sin(2x) = 1 4cos²(x) + 2sin(x)cos(x) = cos²(x) + sin²(x) sin²(x)  2sin(x)cos(x) + cos²(x) = 4cos²(x) (sin(x)  cos(x))² = (2cos(x))² sin(x)  cos(x) = ±2cos(x) sin(x) = cos(x) ± 2cos(x) = cos(x) or 3cos(x) tan(x) = 1 or 3 x = (135 + 180k)$^\circ$ or arctan(3) + 180k$^\circ$ where (by use of a calculator) arctan(3) = 71.565051177...$^\circ$ and k is an integer.
