(a) Copy and complete the table of values for \(y = \sin x + 2 \cos x\), correct to one decimal place.

x 30° 60° 90° 120° 150° 180° 210°

240°

y   2.2       -1.2 -2.0   -1.9

(b) Using a scale of 2 cm to 30° on the x- axis and 2 cm to 0.5 units on the y- axis, draw the graph of \(y = \sin x + 2\cos x\) for \(0° \leq x \leq 240°\).

(c) Use your graph to solve the equation : (i) \(\sin x + 2 \cos x = 0\) ; (ii) \(\sin x = 2.1 - 2\cos x\).

(d) From the graph, find y when x = 171°.
