x-y=nπ+ (-1)nsin-1(1/2), x+y=2mπ±cos-1(1/2), n and m are both integers

Hi Menka,

 

To solve this question quickly, first note that 0 <= x,y <= 180.

 

So min (x-y) = -180, and max (x-y) = 180

and min (x+y) = 0 and max (x+y) = 360

 

This is the interval where you need to be looking for solutions:

so x-y = 30 or 150

and x+y = 60 or 300.

 

Clearly only option D satisfies.

 

Hope that helps.

 

All the best,

Regards,

Ashwin (IIT Madras).
