Dear Pankaj,

I think the detaisl given are incomplete .

you must also give the limit of integration so that it can be solved.

take sec^-1 x=cos^-1 1/x then see where do the function changes its value from one integer to another within the limits and then integrate

Best Of luck

the side of a triangle ABC are in A.P.(order being a,b,c) and satisfy 2!/(1!9!) + 2!/(3!7!)+ 1/(5!5!) = 8^a/(2b)! then the value of cosA+cosB is ?? options are a. 12/7 b. 13/7 c. 11/7 d....
Dear student, Since the sides are in A.P. we have: 2b=a+c ...(i) Also we know that: Using this, we get: This gives, Similarly, and, Hence the given equation can be rewritten as: This yields:...
