3. Solve the equation sin( x + 30°) = 2 cos( x + 45)° for 0° ≤ x ≤ 360° . 4. If 4 cos 2 x − 2 cos x + 1 = 0 , find values for θ in the range 0° ≤ x ≤ 360° .

5. Write 3cos θ + 5sin θ in the form R cos(θ − α ) where R > 0 and 0° < α < 90° , and hence solve the equation 3cos θ + 5sin θ = 2 in the range 0° ≤ x ≤ 360° . [8] 6. Prove that

sin 2 x − cos 2 x + 1 ≡ tan x . sin 2 x + cos 2 x + 1
