Intermediate Mathematics - Equations of the form sin(ax)=B and cos(ax)=B


Equations of the form sin(ax)=B and cos(ax)=B

Because of their cyclic nature both of these are many-to-one functions.
Therefore, depending on the domain, a horizontal line drawn on any of these
graphs may cut the graph in more than one point. This means that, depending
on the domain, there may well be more than one solution.

Knowing the period of the function you can estimate how many solutions to
expect:
