Find all solutions of sin(x)-2cos^2(x)+1=0 on the interval [0,2*pi]

Step 1

Consider the trigonometric identity in terms of sin x and cos x.

Calculate cos^2(x) in terms of sin^2(x).

Step 2

Now, substitute the value of cos^2(x) in terms of sin^2(x) in the given equation to obtain the quadratic equation (1) in terms of sin^2(x).

Step 3

**Let, u = sin x. Substitute u in (1) to get (2).**
