The older version of this answer seemed pretty good. I don't understand the edit... I also don't understand the addition of a second answer from the same user.

Q: Trigonometric equations and blablabla

ranePr A Find all solutions of the equation $\sin\theta=\cos\theta$. Pr B Solve the equation $\sin\theta=\sqrt{3}\cos\theta$ for $0\le \theta <2\pi$. Pr C Solve the equation $\sin 2\theta=\cos\theta$ for $0\le \theta <2\pi$. Pr 1 Solve the equation $2\sin^2 \theta - \sin \theta =0$ for $0\le \theta

That has to be one of the laziest posts I've ever seen on this site.
Couldn't even be bothered to finish writing the title.

D1, D2, D3.
D4, D5, D6.
D7, D8, D9.
@XanderHenderson It think it was a quote but that user didn't bother to fix the line-breaks in the copy-pasta.
 
D5 looks like a standard lemma that it can't hurt to have here
 
It also looks like a homework problem posted by a lazy person who can't even bother to try anything.
 
but in the long run, it's just a question with a useful answer
 
I know your view, but sorry I'm not a fan of being accommodating to laziness.
 
the OP already got their free lunch; at this point deleting won't help anyone
 
10:03 AM
It would discourage the free lunch fountain from flowing.
 
not so much... the sort of people who post homework exercises aren't the sort of people who even look at existing threads
 
I'm talking about the users who post free lunches. The deletion will make them think twice about repeating their 'generosity'.
 
gardening the archives isn't going to raise their post quality
 
And the askers also are penalized by the deletion. Both penalties apply as long as it is a recent enough question.
 
the askers don't care :)
what about changing the thread to CW then?
should have the same effect on answerers
 
10:08 AM
Well, CW only eliminates rep gain after the CW action, which is probably the reasonable thing.
 
hmm i thought it would work differently
anyway i still don't believe deletion is the answer if the point is to subtract points
 
It also informs the SE system if a user has a lot of closed/deleted questions; a question ban sometimes comes into play.
Anyway, sorry I've to go real soon.
