"The mathematician is fascinated with the marvelous beauty of the forms he constructs, and in their beauty he finds everlasting truth." If xcosθ – ysinθ = a, xsinθ + ycos θ = b, prove that x2+y2=a2+b2.

1.

Ans: xcosθ - y sinθ = a xsinθ + y cosθ = b Squaring and adding x2+y2=a2+b2. 2. Prove that sec2θ+cosec2θ can never be less than 2.

Ans: S.T Sec2θ + Cosec2θ can never be less than 2. If possible let it be less than 2. 1 + Tan2θ + 1 + Cot2θ < 2. ⇒ 2 + Tan2θ + Cot2θ ⇒ (Tanθ + Cotθ)2 < 2. Which is not possible. 3. If sinϕ = , show that 3cosϕ-4cos3ϕ = 0.

Ans: Sin ϕ = ½ ⇒ ϕ = 30o Substituting in place of ϕ =30o. We get 0. 4. If 7sin2ϕ+3cos2ϕ = 4, show that tanϕ = 1 .
