ANS    3sinx+4cosx=5


     => 3/5 sinx +4/5 cosx = 1


     let cosA=3/5   => sinA=4/5


     =>  cosAsinx + sinAcosx = 1


     =>  sin(x+A) = 1


Now,


       4sinx - 3cosx


  =   5(4/5sinx - 3/5 cosx)     [multipying numerator and denominator by 5]


  =   5(sinAsinx - cosAcosx)


  =   -5{cos(x+A)} = -5[root{1-(sin(x+A)^2)}] = -5 x 0 = 0          Ans 0


 


TRICK: if asinx+bcosx is given then multiply numerator and denominator by root(a^2 +b^2)


            this method is useful  in many questions

3sinx+4cosx=5


Squaring on both sides.


(3sinx+4cosx) 2 = 25


9sin2x +16 cos2x+24sinxcosx=25


9(1- cos2x)+16(1- sin2x)+ 24sinxcosx=25


9-9 cos2x+16-16 sin2x+24sinxcosx=25


25-9 cos2x-16 sin2x+24sinxcosx=25


9 cos2x+16 sin2x-24sinxcosx=0


(3cosx-4sinx) 2 = 0


4sinx-3cosx=0

If a+b=c, prove that cos^2 a+cos^2b+cos^2c =1+2cosacosbcosc
 
 
cos^2a +cos^2b+cos^2c= (1+cos2a)/2+(1+cos2b)/2+cos^2c =1+(1/2)*(2cos(a+b)cos(a-b) +cos^2c (since a+b+c = 0) =1 + cos(-c)cos(a-b)+cos^2c (since cos(-a) = cosa) =1+cos(c)cos(a-b)+cos^2c...

if x^2+y^2+2x+1=0,then the value of x^31+y^35 ?
 
 
x^2 +2x+1 + y^2 can be written as (x+1)^2 + y^2= 0. Only possible when x = -1 & y= 0. So -1 is your answer. Thanks Bharat Bajaj IIT Delhi askiitians faculty
