Chapter 2 - Inverse Trigonometric Functions Exercise Ex. 2.2
sin (sin-1 (1/5) + cos-1x) = 1
∴ sin-1 (1/5) + cos-1 x = sin-1 1
sin-1 (1/5) + cos-1 x = π/2
sin-1 (1/5) = π/2 - cos-1 x
sin-1 (1/5) = sin-1 x
∴ x = 1/5
We use the results: sin-1 1 = π/2 and sin-1 x + cos-1 x = π/2
As R.H.S is ‘1’, it is easier to take sin-1 1 = π/2
Chapter 2 - Inverse Trigonometric Functions Exercise Misc. Ex.
= by (3)
Let sin-1(3/5) = A and cos-1 (12/13) = B
So sin A = 3/5 and cos B = 12/13
Hence cos A = 4/5 and sin B = 5/13
As R.H.S is sin-1 we use sin (A + B)
Sin (A + B) = sin A cos B + cos A sin B = (3/5) (12/13) + (4/5) (5/13)
= 36/65 + 20/65 = 56/65
Thus A + B = sin-1 (56/65) hence proved.
If R.H.S is cos-1 or sin-1 then use Cos (A + B) or sin (A + B) as the case may be.
