Solve the following equations:

$3 \sin ^{2} x-5 \sin x \cos x+8 \cos ^{2} x=2$

Solution:

$3 \sin ^{2} x-5 \sin x \cos x+8 \cos ^{2} x=2$

$\Rightarrow 3 \sin ^{2} x-5 \sin x \cos x+3 \cos ^{2} x+5 \cos ^{2} x-2=0$

$\Rightarrow 3\left(\sin ^{2} x+\cos ^{2} x\right)-5 \sin x \cos x+5 \cos ^{2} x-2=0$

$\Rightarrow 3-5 \sin x \cos x+5 \cos ^{2} x-2=0$

$\Rightarrow 5 \cos ^{2} x-5 \sin x \cos x+1=0$

$\Rightarrow 5\left(1-\sin ^{2} x\right)-5 \sin x \cos x+1=0$

$\Rightarrow 5-5 \sin ^{2} x-5 \sin x \cos x+1=0$

$\Rightarrow 5 \sin ^{2} x+5 \sin x \cos x-6=0$

Dividing by $\cos ^{2} x$, we get

$\Rightarrow 5 \tan ^{2} x+5 \tan x-6 \sec ^{2} x=0$

$\Rightarrow 5 \tan ^{2} x+5 \tan x-6-6 \tan ^{2} x=0$

$\Rightarrow-\tan ^{2} x+5 \tan x-6=0$

$\Rightarrow \tan ^{2} x-5 \tan x+6=0$

$\Rightarrow \tan ^{2} x-3 \tan x-2 \tan x+6=0$

$\Rightarrow(\tan x-3)(\tan x-2)=0$

$\Rightarrow(\tan x-3)=0$ or $(\tan x-2)=0$

$\Rightarrow \tan x=3$ or $\tan x=2$

$\Rightarrow x=n \pi+\tan ^{-1} 3$ or $x=n \pi+\tan ^{-1} 2, n \in \mathbb{Z}$
