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


2 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

prove that n 3 + 3n 2 + 5n + 3 is divisible by 3 for any natural number n
Hello Student, n^3 + 3n^2 + 5n + 3 =n^3 + 3n^2 + 2n+3n + 3 =n(n^2 + 3n + 2)+3n + 3 =n(n+1)(n+2)+3n+3 Prooved Thanks & Regards Arun Kumar Btech, IIT Delhi Askiitians Faculty

By Fermat’s theorem, n 3 -n is divisible by 3. Hence n 3 +3n 2 +5n+3 = (n 3 -n)+(3n 2 +6n+3) = 3m+3(n+1) 2 for some integer m making the expression obviously a multiple of 3.
