No, this is the quickest method. \(\quad\quad \quad\)Log in to reply

Since the maximum real value for \(\sin \theta\) and \(\cos \theta\) is \(1\), LHS cannot be larger than \(\sqrt{3}+1 < 4\), therefore, there is no real root. – Chew-Seong Cheong · 1 year, 2 months ago

Your method is right, but the maximum value of LHS is not \(\sqrt3+1\).Log in to reply

I did not say that the maximum value is \(\sqrt{3}+1\). What I meant was LHS \(\ne\) RHS.Log in to reply

Thanks! I also used the same method to solve the question in exam and wondering if it was correct or not.Log in to reply
