1. Evaluate the following:

(i) sin 60° cos 30° + sin 30° cos 60°

(ii) 2 tan2 45° + cos2 30° – sin2 60

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 8-4

Solution:

(i) sin 60° cos 30° + sin 30° cos 60°

First, find the values of the given trigonometric ratios

sin 30° = 1/2

cos 30° = √3/2

sin 60° = 3/2

cos 60°= 1/2

Now, substitute the values in the given problem

sin 60° cos 30° + sin 30° cos 60° = √3/2 ×√3/2 + (1/2) ×(1/2 ) = 3/4+1/4 = 4/4 =

(ii) 2 tan2 45° + cos2 30° – sin2 60

We know that, the values of the trigonometric ratios are:

sin 60° = √3/2

cos 30° = √3/2

tan 45° = 1

Substitute the values in the given problem

2 tan2 45° + cos2 30° – sin2 60 = 2(1)+ (√3/2)2-(√3/2)2

2 tan2 45° + cos2 30° – sin2 60 = 2 + 0

2 tan2 45° + cos2 30° – sin2 60 = 2

(iii) cos 45°/(sec 30°+cosec 30°)

We know that,

cos 45° = 1/√2

sec 30° = 2/√3

cosec 30° = 2

Substitute the values, we get

Therefore, cos 45°/(sec 30°+cosec 30°) = (3√2 – √6)/8

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 8-7

cos 60° = 1/2

cot 45° = 1

Substitute the values in the given problem, we get

Ncert solutions class 10 chapter 8-9

We know that,

cos 60° = 1/2

sec 30° = 2/√3

tan 45° = 1

sin 30° = 1/2

cos 30° = √3/2

Now, substitute the values in the given problem, we get

(5cos260° + 4sec230° – tan245°)/(sin30° + cos30°)

= 5(1/2)2+4(2/√3)2-12/(1/2)2+(√3/2)2

= (5/4+16/3-1)/(1/4+3/4)

= (15+64-12)/12/(4/4)

= 67/12

2. Choose the correct option and justify your choice :
(i) 2tan 30°/1+tan230° =
(A) sin 60°            (B) cos 60°          (C) tan 60°            (D) sin 30°
(ii) 1-tan245°/1+tan245° =
(A) tan 90°            (B) 1                    (C) sin 45°            (D) 0
(iii)  sin 2A = 2 sin A is true when A =
(A) 0°                   (B) 30°                  (C) 45°                 (D) 60°

(iv) 2tan30°/1-tan230° =
(A) cos 60°          (B) sin 60°             (C) tan 60°           (D) sin 30°

Solution:

(i) (A) is correct.

Substitute the of tan 30° in the given equation

tan 30° = 1/√3

2tan 30°/1+tan230° = 2(1/√3)/1+(1/√3)2

= (2/√3)/(1+1/3) = (2/√3)/(4/3)

= 6/4√3 = √3/2 = sin 60°

The obtained solution is equivalent to the trigonometric ratio sin 60°

(ii) (D) is correct.

Substitute the of tan 45° in the given equation

tan 45° = 1

1-tan245°/1+tan245° = (1-12)/(1+12)

= 0/2 = 0

The solution of the above equation is 0.

(iii) (A) is correct.

To find the value of A, substitute the degree given in the options one by one

sin 2A = 2 sin A is true when A = 0°

As sin 2A = sin 0° = 0

2 sin A = 2 sin 0° = 2 × 0 = 0

or,

Apply the sin 2A formula, to find the degree value

sin 2A = 2sin A cos A

⇒2sin A cos A = 2 sin A

⇒ 2cos A = 2 ⇒ cos A = 1

Now, we have to check, to get the solution as 1, which degree value has to be applied.

When 0 degree is applied to cos value, i.e., cos 0 =1

Therefore, ⇒ A = 0°

(iv) (C) is correct.

Substitute the of tan 30° in the given equation

tan 30° = 1/√3

2tan30°/1-tan230° =  2(1/√3)/1-(1/√3)2

= (2/√3)/(1-1/3) = (2/√3)/(2/3) = √3 = tan 60°

The value of the given equation is equivalent to tan 60°.

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

Solution:

tan (A + B) = √3

Since √3 = tan 60°

Now substitute the degree value

⇒ tan (A + B) = tan 60°

(A + B) = 60° … (i)

The above equation is assumed as equation (i)

tan (A – B) = 1/√3

Since 1/√3 = tan 30°

Now substitute the degree value

⇒ tan (A – B) = tan 30°

(A – B) = 30° … equation (ii)

Now add the equation (i) and (ii), we get

A + B + A – B = 60° + 30°

Cancel the terms B

2A = 90°

A= 45°

Now, substitute the value of A in equation (i) to find the value of B

45° + B = 60°

B = 60° – 45°

B = 15°

Therefore A = 45° and B = 15°

4. State whether the following are true or false. Justify your answer.

(i) sin (A + B) = sin A + sin B.

(ii) The value of sin θ increases as θ increases.

(iii) The value of cos θ increases as θ increases.

(iv) sin θ = cos θ for all values of θ.

(v) cot A is not defined for A = 0°.

Solution:

(i) False.

Justification:

Let us take A = 30° and B = 60°, then

Substitute the values in the sin (A + B) formula, we get

sin (A + B) = sin (30° + 60°) = sin 90° = 1 and,

sin A + sin B = sin 30° + sin 60°

= 1/2 + √3/2 = 1+√3/2

Since the values obtained are not equal, the solution is false.

(ii) True.

Justification:

According to the values obtained as per the unit circle, the values of sin are:

sin 0° = 0

sin 30° = 1/2

sin 45° = 1/√2

sin 60° = √3/2

sin 90° = 1

Thus the value of sin θ increases as θ increases. Hence, the statement is true

(iii) False.

According to the values obtained as per the unit circle, the values of cos are:

cos 0° = 1

cos 30° = √3/2

cos 45° = 1/√2

cos 60° = 1/2

cos 90° = 0

Thus, the value of cos θ decreases as θ increases. So, the statement given above is false.

(iv) False

sin θ = cos θ, when a right triangle has 2 angles of (π/4). Therefore, the above statement is false.

(v) True.

Since cot function is the reciprocal of the tan function, it is also written as:

cot A = cos A/sin A

Now substitute A = 0°

cot 0° = cos 0°/sin 0° = 1/0 = undefined.

Hence, it is true
