Solve for the value of x for the equation:


Consider the given equation above

Did you notice that the given equation consists of the product of trigonometric functions? Well, we have to split the product of trigonometric functions first into single trigonometric functions by using the sum and product formula as follows

Take the inverse cosine on both sides of the equation, we have


Therefore, the values of x are

where n is the number of revolutions.
