Answer to Question #25320 in Trigonometry for brittany roney

Question #25320
how to find all solutions of cos(x)= sin(x) in the interval [0,2(3.14))
Expert's answer
cos(x)= sin(x)
Let's at first gather all the terms in the left part of the equation:cos(x)-sin(x)=0Now we can multiply both parts of the equation by 1/sqrt(2) in order to transform it into sine of the sum:

1/sqrt(2) * cos(x) - 1/sqrt(2) *sin(x)=0
sin(pi/4)*cos(x)-cos(pi/4)*sin(x)=0Now we have the expression which can be written as a single sine function:

sin( pi/4 -x)=0
pi/4-x=pi*k, k -integer
for our interval we get solution x=pi/4, x=5pi/4
