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

How do i solve equations like these find no. of ordeted pairs for 10y+10x=xy-1?
 
 
You will get infinite number of ordered pairs for this equation. 10y + 10 x = xy –1 y = – (1 + 10x)/(10 – x) & x = – (1 + 10y)/(10 – y) This is not defined for x = 10 & y = 10
