Q. 3sinx + 4cosx + r is always greater than or equal to 0. What is the smallest value ‘r’ can to take?
Sin2014x + Cos2014x = 1, x in the range of [-5π, 5π], how many values can x take?
We know that Sin2x + Cos2x = 1 for all values of x.
If Sin x or Cos x is equal to –1 or 1, then Sin2014x + Cos2014x will be equal to 1.
Sin x is equal to –1 or 1 when x = –4.5π or –3.5π or –2.5π or –1.5π or –0.5π or 0.5π or 1.5π or 2.5π or 3.5π or 4.5π.
Cosx is equal to –1 or 1 when x = –5π or –4π or –3π or –2π or –π or 0 or π or 2π or 3π or 4π or 5π.
For all other values of x, Sin2014 x will be strictly lesser than Sin2x.
For all other values of x, Cos2014 x will be strictly lesser than Cos2x.
We know that Sin2x + Cos2x is equal to 1. Hence, Sin2014x + Cos2014x will never be equal to 1 for all other values of x. Thus there are 21 values.
Answer choice (C)
Consider a regular hexagon ABCDEF. There are towers placed at B and D. The angle of elevation from A to the tower at B is 30 degrees, and to the top of the tower at D is 45 degrees. What is the ratio of the heights of towers at B and D?
Let the hexagon ABCDEF be of side ‘a’. Line AD = 2a. Let towers at B and D be B’B and D’D respectively.
From the given data we know that ∠B´AB = 30° and ∠D´AB = 45°. Keep in mind that the Towers B’B and D´D are not in the same plane as the hexagon.
Find the maximum and minimum value of 8 cos A + 15 sin A + 15
If cos A + cos2 A = 1 and a sin12 A + b sin10 A + c sin8 A + d sin6 A - 1 = 0. Find the value of
Cos A = 1- Cos2A
=) Cos A = Sin2 A
=) Cos2A = Sin4A
=) 1 – Sin2 A = Sin4 A
=) 1 = Sin4 A + Sin2 A
=) 13 = (Sin4A + Sin2A)3
=) 1 = Sin12 A + Sin6A + 3Sin8 A + 3Sin10 A
=) Sin12 A + Sin6A + 3Sin8 A + 3Sin10 A – 1 = 0
a = 1, b = 3 , c = 3 , d = 1
In the above figure, the sheet of width W is folded along PQ such that R overlaps S Length of PQ can be written as :-
If you are quick at observing , this question can be solved just by looking at the options as ,
We can draw the figure as :-
Answer choice (D)
Find the value of :- (log sin 1° + log sin 2° ………..+ log sin 89°) + (log tan 1° + log tan 2° + ……… + log tan 89°) - (log cos 1° + log cos 2° + ……… + log cos 89°)
Writing the equation as :-
(log sin 1° - log cos 89°) + (log sin 2° - log cos 88°) + (log sin 3° - log cos 87°)………… + log tan 1°. log tan 89° + log tan 2°. log tan 88° + …….
=) (log sin 1° - log sin 1°) +(log sin 2° - log sin 2°)+……..+ log tan 1°cot 1° + log tan 2°cot 2°
=) log 1 = 0
Ram and Shyam are 10 km apart. They both see a hot air balloon passing in the sky making an angle of 60° and 30° respectively. What is the height at which the balloon could be flying?
A man standing on top of a tower sees a car coming towards the tower. If it takes 20 minutes for the angle of depression to change from 30° to 60°, what is the time remaining for the car to reach the tower?
A right angled triangle has a height ‘p’, base ‘b’ and hypotenuse ‘h’. Which of the following value can h2 not take, given that p and b are positive integers?
We know that,
h2 = p2 + b2 Given, p and b are positive integer, so h2 will be sum of two perfect squares. We see
a) 72 + 52 = 74
b) 62 + 42 = 52
c) 32 + 22 = 13
d) Can’t be expressed as a sum of two perfect squares
The question is "Which of the following value can h2 not take, given that p and b are positive integers? "
Hence, the answer is 23
