cos(4x)-3cos(2x)-4 for xe [0.2π]

Expert Answer

Step 1

Consider the given equation and replace the term cos(4x) using double angle trigonometric identity. We use, cos(4x) = 2cos2(2 x) – 1. This will help us have the entire equation in the form of cos(2x). We get:

Expand
Step 2

We now have a quadratic equation in terms of cos(2x). Hence, we can first solve for cos(2 x), by solving the equation using factoring.

Expand
Step 3
