2005 Paper 2 question 8
There a diagram, and you need to find out the point of intersection between ksin2x and sinx
Could someone please show me how to do this?

you can say that the curves intersect where y=y

hence;

ksin2x=sinx
ksin2x-sinx=0
2ksinxcosx-sinx=0
sinx(2kcosx-1)=0

sinx=0 or..2kcosx-1=0

where sinx=0, x=0, pi.gif or 2[pi] implies.gif O(0,0) , B(pi.gif,0) and D(2 pi.gif,0)

where;
2kcosx-1 = 0;
cosx = 1/2k

since we know what B and D are, it can be implied that cosx = 1/2k at the points A and C
