Find Min. value of f(x) = sin6 x + cos6x.

5 years ago


Answers : (3)


Dear Man111,

Solution:- f(x) = (sin2 x)3 + (cos2 x)3 = (sin2 x+ cos2x) [ (sin2 x)2 + sin2 x cos2x +(cos2x)2 ]

                         = [ (sin2 x + cos2x)2 - 2sin2 x cos2x + sin2 x cos2x ]

                         = [1 - sin2 x cos2x]

f(x) is minimum when (sin2 x cos2x) is maximum and maximum value of (sin2 x cos2x) is 1/2 when x =450

So, min. value of f(x) is 1/2 [ANS].

f(x)=sin6x   +   cos6x

      = (sin2x)3 + (cos2x)    

 f(x)= (sin2x+cos2x)(sin4x+cos4x-sinxcosx)                                                 a3 + b3 =(a+b)(a2 +b2 -ab)


f(x)={[(1-cos2x)/2 ]2 +[(1+cos2x)/2]2 -sin2x/2}                            sin2x=(1-cos2x)/2  ,cos2x=(1+cos2x)/2


f(x)=[1-(sin22x+sin2x)]/2 .......................1

for f(x) to be minimum ,the subtracting term (sin22x + sin2x) should be maximum ,

and its maximum value is 2 at x=pi/4,

so minimum value of f(x)=1-2/2=-1/2

1)prove that (cos x)cos(60-x)cos(60+x) = ¼ cos3x 2)sin 2x -sin5x + sin6x = 0
Use exopansion property of cos(A+B) and apply you will get the answer. Take sin5x on other side and then use the clubbing property of sinA+sinB.

If sinx + sin 2 x + sin 3 x = 1,then find the value of cos 6 x - 4cos 4 x + 8cos 2 x.
Write sinx + sin 2 x + sin 3 x = 1, as: sinx + sin 3 x = 1 – sin 2 x Now squaring both sides, U would get, sin^6x + sin^4x + 3sin^2x = 1 and write each sin^2x to (1-cos^2x) => (1-cos^2x) ^3 ...
