Solve for x.

| sin x |^2 + | cos x |^2 = sqrt{3}

Note: The bars | | indicate absolute value.

| sin (x )|^2 + | cos( x )|^2 = sqrt(3)

There are no values of x that make the equation true.
No solution

Why are you using absolute value when you're then squaring?
And since the Pythagorean identity is well known, why this question at all?

I did not make it up. I'm not that smart.
