Solve sin(x) = tan ( \frac{x}{3})


Solve {eq}sin(x) = tan ( \frac{x}{3}) {/eq}

Solving the Trigonometric Equation:

A trigonometric equation can be solved graphically or with the help of trigonometric ratios and identities.

Since the trigonometric functions are periodic there could be infinite solutions.

Answer and Explanation:

We have:

{eq}\sin(x) = \tan\left ( \frac{x}{3}\right ) {/eq}

We solve the above trigonometric equation graphically and find the roots as
