Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Cos 105° =

    • A.

      (√2 - √6)/4

    • B.

      (√2 + √6)/4

    • C.

      (√2 + √5)/4

    • D.

      (√3 + √6)/4

    Correct Answer
    B. (√2 + √6)/4
    Explanation
    The correct answer is (√2 + √6)/4. This can be determined by using the cosine function and the unit circle. The cosine of 105 degrees can be found by evaluating the x-coordinate of the point on the unit circle corresponding to 105 degrees. By using the values of √2 and √6, which are the x-coordinates of the points on the unit circle corresponding to 45 degrees and 60 degrees respectively, we can add them together and divide by 4 to get the cosine of 105 degrees.

    ________ = SinA.CosB - CosA.SinB

    • A.

      Sin (A -B)

    • B.

      Sin (A +B)

    • C.

      Cos (A -B) 

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    A. Sin (A -B)
    Explanation
    The given expression, SinA.CosB - CosA.SinB, can be simplified using the trigonometric identity for the sine of the difference of two angles, which is Sin (A - B). Therefore, the correct answer is Sin (A - B).

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    If tan(A + B) = √3 and tan(A – B) = 1/√3 ; 0° < A + B ≤ 90°; A > B,Then A =

    • A.

      45 degree

    • B.

      48 degree

    • C.

      50 degree

    • D.

      55 degree

    Correct Answer
    A. 45 degree
    Explanation
    The given information states that tan(A + B) = √3 and tan(A – B) = 1/√3. Since tan(A + B) = √3, we can conclude that the angle (A + B) must be 60 degrees, as the tangent of 60 degrees is √3. Similarly, tan(A – B) = 1/√3 implies that the angle (A – B) must be 30 degrees, as the tangent of 30 degrees is 1/√3.

    Now, we can solve for A by adding the two equations: (A + B) + (A – B) = 60 + 30. This simplifies to 2A = 90, and dividing both sides by 2 gives A = 45 degrees. Therefore, the correct answer is 45 degrees.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If tan(A + B) = √3 and tan(A – B) = 1/√3 ; 0° < A + B ≤ 90°; A > B,Then B =

    • A.

      10 degree

    • B.

      12 degree

    • C.

      15 degree

    • D.

      20 degree

    Correct Answer
    C. 15 degree
    Explanation
    The given information states that tan(A + B) = √3 and tan(A – B) = 1/√3. Since the values of tan(A + B) and tan(A – B) are known, we can use the trigonometric identities to find the value of B. By using the identity tan(A + B) = (tanA + tanB) / (1 - tanA * tanB), we can substitute the given values to get (√3) = (tanA + tanB) / (1 - tanA * tanB). Similarly, using the identity tan(A – B) = (tanA - tanB) / (1 + tanA * tanB), we can substitute the given values to get (1/√3) = (tanA - tanB) / (1 + tanA * tanB). By solving these two equations simultaneously, we can find the value of B, which is 15 degrees.

  • 6. 

    Given cos A = -4/5, where π/2<A<π, A =

    • A.

      4/5

    • B.

      3/5

    • C.

      2/3

    • D.

      -2/3

    Correct Answer
    B. 3/5
    Explanation
    The given information states that cos A is equal to -4/5, where A is an angle between π/2 and π. Since cosine is equal to the adjacent side divided by the hypotenuse in a right triangle, we can conclude that the adjacent side is -4 and the hypotenuse is 5. By using the Pythagorean theorem, we can find the opposite side, which is 3. Therefore, the sine of A is equal to 3/5.

    If sin 3A = cos (A – 26°), where 3A is an acute angle,A =

    • A.

      29 degree

    • B.

      31 degree

    • C.

      43 degree

    • D.

      77 degree

    Correct Answer
    A. 29 degree
    Explanation
    The given equation sin 3A = cos (A – 26°) implies that the sine of 3A is equal to the cosine of (A – 26°). Since the sine and cosine functions have a phase difference of 90°, we can conclude that 3A and (A – 26°) must also have a phase difference of 90°. This means that 3A and (A – 26°) are complementary angles. Since A is an acute angle, the only possible value for A that satisfies this condition is 29 degrees.

    (√6 - √2)/4 =

    • A.

      Sin 20 degree

    • B.

      Sin 55 degree

    • C.

      Sin 12 degree

    • D.

      Sin 15 degree

    Correct Answer
    D. Sin 15 degree
    Explanation
    To solve the given equation (√6 - √2)/4, we can simplify it by rationalizing the denominator. We multiply both the numerator and the denominator by the conjugate of the denominator, which is (√6 + √2). This results in (√6 - √2)(√6 + √2) = (√6)^2 - (√2)^2 = 6 - 2 = 4. Therefore, the simplified equation becomes 4/4, which simplifies further to 1. The value of sin 15 degrees is also 1/4. Hence, the answer is sin 15 degrees.

    Cos (A+B) =

    • A.

      SinA.CosB - CosA.SinB

    • B.

      CosA.CosB - SinA.SinB

    • C.

      SinA.CosB + CosA.SinB

    • D.

      None of these

    Correct Answer
    B. CosA.CosB - SinA.SinB
    Explanation
    The given expression, CosA.CosB - SinA.SinB, is the correct answer because it represents the formula for the cosine of the sum of two angles. The formula states that the cosine of the sum of angles A and B is equal to the product of the cosines of each angle minus the product of the sines of each angle. Therefore, the correct answer is CosA.CosB - SinA.SinB.
