There's no "nice" solution. You can determine the value of \(\cos^2\theta\) by squaring the first equation and solve the quartic equation, but the final value does not have a nice form. Pi Han Goh · 11 months ago

@Pi Han Goh I'm sorry !I think the question was wrongly printed in my book!! I searched and found that its Cos^6theta-4Cos⁴+8Cos²!!

Thanks for your reply! Naitik Sanghavi · 11 months ago
