(iv) 1+tan2A/1+cot2A= 

(A) secA                (B) -1             (C) cot2A               (D) tan2A

Solution

Question 5 :

Prove the followingidentities, where the angles involved are acute angles for which the
expressions are defined.

Answer 5 :

(i) (cosec θ – cotθ)= (1-cos θ)/(1+cos θ)

(ii) cos A/(1+sinA) + (1+sin A)/cos A = 2 sec A

(iii) tan θ/(1-cotθ) + cot θ/(1-tan θ) = 1 + sec θ cosec θ

    [Hint : Write the expression in terms of sin θ and cos θ]

(iv) (1 + secA)/sec A = sin2A/(1-cos A)  

    [Hint : Simplify LHS and RHS separately]

(v) ( cos A–sinA+1)/( cos A +sin A–1) = cosec A + cot A, using the identity cosec2A= 1+cot2A.

(vii) (sin θ – 2sin3θ)/(2cos3θ-cosθ) = tan θ
(viii) (sin A + cosec A)+ (cos A + sec A)2 = 7+tan2A+cot2A
(ix) (cosec A – sin A)(sec A – cos A) = 1/(tan A+cotA)
[Hint : Simplify LHS and RHS separately]
(x) (1+tan2A/1+cot2A) = (1-tan A/1-cot A)2 = tan2A
