find the area of the largest rectangle that can be inscribed in an isosceles triangle of base10ft. and area 30 square ft


4 years ago


Answers : (1)


Thats 15 sq. feet (according to me)

let the length of the part of base, not included in side of Rectangle be X both side and the vertical side length be Y......


Now the rectangle has side lengths, Y and 10-2X.......

now use similar triangle property to find relation b/w Y and X

i.e. Y=6X/5

Hence area = XxY = 6X/5x(10-2X)

Use dA/dX=0 to get X=5/2

Therefore, A=15................Cool

How to apply telescopic series in series involving sine of angles
suppose your seies is : sin x + sin 2x + sin 3x..........sin nx, multiply and divide by sin x/2, use sin x * sin y = ½ * (cos(x-y) – cos(x+y) ), sin x * sinx/2 = 0.5 * cos(x/2) – 0.5 *...

se sin x * sin y = ½ * (cos(x-y) – cos(x+y) ), sin x * sinx/2 = 0.5 * cos(x/2) – 0.5 * cos(1.5x), sin 2x * sin x/2 = 0.5 * cos(1.5 x) – 0.5*cos(2.5 x), sin 3x * sin x/2 = 0.5 * cos(2.5 x) – ...

hi there! i’m stuck n solving this one using the miracle substitution(weistrass).integral of 1/(sinx(3+2cosx). i am using this as this makes everything simple. but i dont know if there are...
hey take tan(x/2)=t, then sinx= 2t/(1+t^2) and cosx= (1-t^2)/ (1+t^2) and dx=2dt/(1+t^2), ur integral will become ∫ 2dt/(2t*(3+2(1-t^2)))= ∫ dt/(t(5-2t^2)) . This u can solve by partial...
