Overview

Concluding our study of solving trigonometric equations, today we look specifically at those with "messy" angles. The angles may be multiple angles (i.e., double-angles 2θ, triple-angles 3θ, quadruple angles, 4θ, etc.). Or the angles may involve a phase shift. These equations require that you be particularly careful to obtain all the answers that are possible within the given interval. We will also solve equations for every possible solution (i.e. all the coterminal answers) rather than restricting the solutions to a particular range. This is a tricky section!
