If 3 sin2 A + 2 sin2 B = 1 and 3 sin 2A − 2 sin 2B = 0, where A and B are acute angles then find the value of (A +2B)

Answers : (1)


Dear Nirabhra, 

sin2B=3/2sin2A …(i)

And from the first equation,

3sin2A=1-2sin2B=cos2B …(ii)

cos (A + 2B) = cos A. cos 2B – sin A.sin 2B


3cosA.sin2A-3sin2AcosA =0

cos (A+2B)=0

∴ A+2B=π2,3π2 …(iii)

Given that < A < π/2 and 0 < B < π/2

⇒ 0<A+2B<π+π2

⇒ 0<A+2B<3π2 …(iv)

From (iii) and (iv),

if cosx+cosy+cosz=sinx+siny+sinz=0 then prove that sin2x+sin2y+sin2z=cos2x+cos2y+cos2z=0
hello student,, cosx + cosy = -cosz , cos^2x + cos^2y + 2cosx.cosy = cos^2z , in a similar way : sin^2x+sin^2y+2sinx.siny = sin^2z , add eqns & simplify : 1+1+2(cosx.cosy+sinx.siny) = 1...

Just change the expression in terms of sin and cos (i.e. sina+cosa and (sina)(cosa) ) Then replace sina.cosa as t and sina + cosa as (1+2t) 1/2 This gives value of t . we have to find sin 2a...
