What are the values of a and b? 2cos3a+2cos3b=1 2cos5a+2cos5b=1 Pleaze help me!  July 1st, 2014, 12:11 PM #2 Global Moderator   Joined: May 2007 Posts: 6,804 Thanks: 715 There may be a neater way. I would start by using the sum formulas to reduce every thing to cosa and cosb. You then have two equations in two unknowns.

Let's assume there is solution for $\displaystyle 0 \le a,b \le \pi /2$ $\displaystyle b= \frac{\arccos ( \frac{1- 2 \cos (3a)}{2} )}{3} = \frac{\arccos ( \frac{1- 2 \cos (5a)}{2} )}{5}$ Now we have one variable and one equation.(?) I conjecture that solution is near to 1.5. Find x where f(x)=0 in $\displaystyle f(x) = \frac{\arccos ( \frac{1- 2 \cos (3x)}{2} )}{3} - \frac{\arccos ( \frac{1- 2 \cos (5x)}{2} )}{5}$ Tags trigonometric « tan | range »
