In right triangle ABC, with B = 90 degrees, we have sin A = 2 cos A + tan A. What is tan A?

The above is the graph of \(y=sin(x)-2cos(x)-tan(x)\)over the interval (0, 2pi). There are two zeros: 3.85300 rads and 5.21133 rads. Neither zeros are the size you could fit in a right triangle. So there is something lacking or false in the statement of this problem. Please correct it before others waste time on it. Thanks.
