tanx-3cotx=2tan3x(0<x<360)

cosx-sinx=cosy-siny

cos2xcotx+1=cos2x+cotx

Joshi sir comment

tanx - 3/tanx = 2[3tanx-tan3x]/[1-3tan2x]

so [tan2x - 3]/tanx = 2tanx[3-tan2x]/[1-3tan2x]

so [tan2x - 3][1-3tan2x] = 2tan2x[3-tan2x]

so [tan2x - 3][1-3tan2x] + 2tan2x[tan2x-3] = 0

so [tan2x - 3][1-tan2x] = 0

so tanx = 1, -1, √3, -√3

now check the values satisfying last eq.

then put these values in 2nd eq. to get answer.

Find the value :-

(tan69 +tan66) / (1 - tan69.tan66)

Joshi sir comment

use formula of tan(A+B)

Find the max. and min. value of

y = 7cosA + 24sinA

Joshi sir comment

7cosA + 24sinA

= 25[7cosA/25 + 24sinA/25] = 25[cosAcosB + sinAsinB]                          where tanB = 24/7

= 25cos[A-B]                    max and min of cos[A-B] = 1 and -1

so max. = 25  and min. = -25

Prove that :-

tanA + 2tan2A + 4tan4A + 8cot8A = cosecA / secA

Joshi sir comment

We have to prove

tanA + 2tan2A + 4tan4A + 8cot8A = cosecA / secA

or tanA + 2tan2A + 4tan4A + 8cot8A = cotA

or 2tan2A + 4tan4A + 8cot8A = cotA - tanA

or tan2A + 2tan4A + 4cot8A = [1-tan2A]/2tanA

or tan2A + 2tan4A + 4cot8A = cot2A

or 2tan4A + 4cot8A = cot2A - tan2A

or tan4A + 2cot8A = [1-tan22A]/2tan2A

or tan4A + 2cot8A = cot4A

or 2cot8A = cot4A-tan4A

or cot8A = [1-tan24A]/2tan4A

it is true so proved

Prove that :-

sin(A+B+C+D) + sin(A+B-C-D) + sin(A+B-C+D) + sin(A+B+C-D) = 4sin(A+B).cosC.cosD

Joshi sir comment

sin(A+B+C+D) = sin(A+B)[cosCcosD-sinCsinD]+cos(A+B)[sinCcosD+cosCsinD]

similarly solve all the terms and add all these terms for getting answer

((1(secA.secA-cosA.cosA))-(1/(cosecA.cosecA-sinA.sinA))).sinA.sinA.cosA.cosA=(1-cosA.cosA.sinA.sinA)/(2+cosA.cosA.sinA.sinA)

Joshi sir comment

Submit the correct question, In first bracket / will be there so

((1/(secA.secA-cosA.cosA))-(1/(cosecA.cosecA-sinA.sinA))).sinA.sinA.cosA.cosA

= [cos2A/sin2A(1+cos2A) - sin2A/cos2A(1+sin2A)]sin2Acos2A

= [cos4A(1+sin2A) - sin4A(1+cos2A)] / [(1+sin2A)(1+cos2A)]

now solve

if x is any real number and cosA=x^2+1/2x then cos A value is

Joshi sir comment

x2+1 > 2x so cosA>1 which is not possible

if x=2Cosθ-Cos2θ and y=2Sinθ-Sin2θ prove that dy/dx=tan(3θ/2)

Joshi sir comment

calculate dx/dθ and dy/dθ

then dy/dx = [2cosθ-2cos2θ]/[-2sinθ+2sin2θ]

now solve

use cosC-cosD = 2sin[(C+D)/2]sin[(D-C)/2]

and sinC+sinD = 2sin[(C+D)/2]cos[(C-D)/2]

What are trigonometrical identities?

Joshi sir comment

sin2A + cos2A = 1 and two similar formulae in terms of tanA, cotA, secA and cosecA

these are identities because these are true for all values of A

if secA-tanA=3

then find the value of (5cosA+4cotB)??

jus a hint

Joshi sir comment

First replace cotB by cotA.

because it is wrongly printed by you.
