Given :  sinA+2cosA = 1   ....................................(1)
 
Required to prove : 2sinA - cosA = 2  ...........................(2)
 
let us use the notation, s = sinA and c = cosA
 
Then given trignometric equation is written as,  s+2c = 1  .................(3)
 
let us write eqn.(3) as :    s = 1 - 2c
squaring both sides of the above eqn.,  we have   s²= (1-2c)² = 1 + 4c² -4c   
 
4c²-4c+(1-s²) = 0    or  5c² - 4c = 0   ( because 1-sin2θ = cos²θ )
 
hence we have,   c(5c-4) = 0   ; hence c = 0 or c=4/5 .............................(4)
 
if we consider c = cosA = 4/5 , then sinA = begin mathsize 12px style square root of 1 minus open parentheses 4 over 5 close parentheses squared end root space equals plus-or-minus space 3 over 5 end style
hence required eqn. :-   if sinA = 3/5 and cosA=4/5,  then 2sinA - cosA = (6/5)-(4/5) = 2/5  ≠ 2
 
if sinA = -3/5 and cosA=4/5, then 2sinA - cosA = (-6/5)-(4/5)  = -2  ≠ 2
 
in eqn.(4) if we consider c = cosA = 0, then sinA = 1
 
hence required eqn. :-   2sinA - cosA =  2(1) - 0 = 2
 
Conclusion : if cosA=0 as we get in eqn.(4), then 2sinA - cosA = 2
