QUESTION: 1

### What is the principal value branch of cot–1x ?

Solution:

The cotangent function is periodic so to calculate its inverse function we need to make the function bijective. For that we have to consider an interval in which all values of the function exist and do not repeat. For cotangent function this interval is considered as (0, π).

Thus when we take the inverse of the function the domain becomes range and the range becomes domain. Hence the principal value branch is the range of cot–1 x that is (0, π).

Let T be the set of all triangles in a plane with R is a relation in T given by R = {(T1, T2) : T1 is congruent to T2}. Then R is

Solution:

For reflexive, T1 is congruent to T1
⇒ (T1,T1) Î R For symmetric, (T1,T2) ∈ R ⇒ T1 is congruent to T2 ⇒ T2 is congruent to T1 ⇒ (T2,T1) ∈ R. Hence it is symmetric.
For transitive, (T1, T2) ∈ R ⇒ T1 is congruent to T2 and (T2,T3) ∈ R ⇒ T2 is congruent to T3 which implies T1 is congruent to T3 ⇒ (T1,T3) ∈ R. Hence, it is transitive.

QUESTION: 27

What is the domain of the cot–1 x ?

Solution:

The cot function is periodic so to calculate its inverse function we need to make the function bijective. For that we have to consider an interval in which all values of the function exist and do not repeat. Now for the inverse of a function the domain becomes range and the range becomes domain. Thus the range of cot function, that is, (-∞, ∞) becomes the domain of inverse function.
