We learned how to factor Quadratic Equations in the Solving Quadratics by Factoring and Completing the Square section.

Note that when we factor trig equations to find solutions, like we do with “regular” equations, we never just divide a factor out from each side.

Note that we will use Trigonometric Identities to solve trig problems in the Trigonometric Identity section.

Important Note: There is a subtle distinction between finding inverse trig functions and solving for trig functions.

Note that \(k\) represents all integers \(\left( k\in \mathbb \right)\).

Note also that I’m using “fancy” notation; you may not be required to do this., depending on your book or teacher.

In doing this, we are probably “throwing away” valid solutions to the equation.

Here are some examples, both solving on the interval and over the reals; note one of the problems is using degrees instead of radians.

This will sometimes happen if trig functions are squared in the problems also, since we’ll getting plusses and minuses.

Here are examples; find the general solution, or all real solutions) for the following equations.
