    cos^2x [1+cos^2x+cos^3x+cos^4x+......cos^7x] = 0

    ∴cos^2x=0 or [1+cos^2x+cos^3x+......+cos^7x]=0

    consider the range of cosx, which lies in the range of -1 and 1

    ∴-1<cosx<1

    ∴cos^2x, cos^4x, cos^6x must be larger than 0

    There is only chance that cos^3x, cos^5x, cos^7x be negative if cosx is in the range of -1<cosx<0

    However, in the range of -1<cosx<1, |cos^3x|<|cos^2x|, |cos^5x|<|cos^4x| and |cos^7x|<|cos^6x|

    ∴1+cosx+cos^2x+......+cos^7x must be >0

    ∴The final solution is cos^2x=0

    cosx=0

    x=360n90
