If any individual factor on the left side of the equation is equal to , the entire expression will be equal to .

Set the first factor equal to .

Take the inverse sine of both sides of the equation to extract from inside the sine.

The exact value of is .

The sine function is positive in the first and second quadrants. To find the second solution, subtract the reference angle from to find the solution in the second quadrant.

Subtract from .

Find the period.

The period of the function can be calculated using .

Replace with in the formula for period.

Solve the equation.

The absolute value is the distance between a number and zero. The distance between and is .

Divide by .

The period of the function is so values will repeat every radians in both directions.
