Given: Solve the following trigonometric equation finding all solutions for x in the interval [0, 2pi] 2cos(2x)csc^2(x)=2cos(2x) So I moved the 2cos(2x) to the other side, 2cos(2x)csc^2(x)-2cos(2x)=0 So then I simplify; 2cos(2x)(csc^2(x)-1)=0 Then I solved for the Os cos2x=0 csc^2(x)=0 cos in 0 will be pi/2 , 3pi/2 csc= +-1 (then I convert to the reciprocal sin=+- 1) then pi/2, 3pi/2 So my answers will be x=pi/4+pik K=0=pi/4 k=1=pi k=2=9pi/4 (this out of range) Please guys or gals check my problem and tell me if I did it right!

There are six solutions in the specified interval, but ? is not a solution.
