Dear Shiwani

Maxinmum value of 7cosx+5sinx=√(72+52)=√74=8.6

and minimum value is -8.6

so it will vary between -8.6 to 8.6

2k+1 is an odd integer. between -8.6 to 8.6 odd integers are -7,-5,-3,-1,1,3,5,7

and corresponding values of k will be -4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3

hence there are 8 values of k

All the best.

7cosx + 5sinx =2k+1

dividing the eq  by (72+52)1/2 or (74)1/2

7/(74)1/2 COSX + 5/(74)1/2 SINX = 2k+1/(74)1/2          ..............1

now put  7/(74)1/2 = sin@

5/(74)1/2 = cos@

putting in eq 1

sin@cosx + cos@sinx = (2k+1)/(74)1/2

sin(x+@) = (2k+1)/741/2

sin(x+@) lies bw -1 to 1 so

+1>=  (2k+1)/741/2  >=-1

+3.8 >=       k         >=-4.8

integral values of k are [-4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3] , 8 values of k

Dear student,

Maximum value of 7cosx+5sinx=√(72+52)=√74=8.6
and minimum value is – 8.6
so it will vary between – 8.6 to 8.6
– 8.6
– 4.8
Hence, values of k will be -4,-3,-2,-1,0,1,2,3
hence there are 8 values of k

Thanks and regards,
