## NCERT Solutions for Class 10 Maths Chapter 8 Introduction to Trigonometry Ex 8.2

Class 10 Ex 8.2 Question 1.
Evaluate the following: Solution:  Ex 8.2 Class 10 Question 2.
Choose the correct option and justify your choice: Solution:  Exercise 8.2 Class 10 Question 3.
If tan (A + B) = √3 and tan (A – B) = 1√3; 0° < A + B ≤ 90°; A > B, find A and B.
Solution:
tan (A + B) = √3
⇒ tan (A + B) = tan 60°
⇒ A + B = 60° ……(i)
tan (A – B) = 1√3
⇒ tan (A – B) = tan 30°
⇒ A – B = 30° ……..(ii)
Adding equation (i) and (ii), we get
2A = 90° ⇒ A = 45°
From (i), 45° + B = 60° ⇒ B = 60° – 45° = 15°
Hence, ∠A = 45°, ∠B = 15°

Exercise 8.2 Class 10 NCERT Solution Question 4.
State whether the following statements are true or false. Justify your answer.
(i) sin (A + B) = sin A + sin B.
(ii) The value of sin θ increases as θ increases.
(iii) The value of cos θ increases as θ increases.
(iv) sin θ = cos θ for all values of θ.
(v) cot A is not defined for A = 0°.

Question 1. Solution: Question 2.
Show that:
(i) tan 48° tan 23° tan 42° tan 67° = 1
(ii) cos 38° cos 52° – sin 38° sin 52° = 0
Solution:
(i) LHS = tan 48° tan 23° tan 42° tan 67°
= tan 48° tan 23° tan (90° – 48°) tan (90° – 23°)
= tan 48° tan 23° cot 48° cot 23° = tan 48° tan 23° .1tan48∘⋅1tan23∘
= 1 = RHS

(ii) LHS = cos 38° cos 52° – sin 38° sin 52°
= cos 38° cos (90° – 38°) – sin 38° sin (90° – 38°)
= cos 38° sin 38°- sin 38° cos 38° = 0 = RHS

Question 3.
If tan 2A = cot (A – 18°), where 2A is an acute angle, find the value of A.
Solution:
tan 2A = cot (A – 18°)
⇒ cot (90° – 2A) = cot (A – 18°) [∵cot (90° – θ) = tan θ]
⇒ 90° – 2A = A – 18° ⇒ 3A = 108° ⇒ A = 108°3
∴ ∠ A = 36°

Question 4.
If tan A = cot B, prove that A + B = 90°.
Solution:
tan A = cot B ⇒ tan A = tan (90° – B) [ ∵ tan (90° – θ) = cot θ]
⇒ A = 90° – B ⇒ A + B = 90° Proved

Question 5.
If sec 4A = cosec (A – 20°), where 4A is an acute angle, find the value of A.
Solution:
sec 4A = cosec (A – 20°)
⇒ cosec (90° – 4A) = cosec (A – 20°) [cosec (90° – θ) = sec θ]
⇒ 90° – 4A = A – 20° ⇒ 5A = 110°
A = 110°5
A = 22°
∴ ∠ A = 22°

Question 6.
If A, Band Care interior angles of a triangle ABC, then show that: sin (B+C2) = cos A2
Solution: Question 7.
Express sin 61° + cos 75° in terms of trigonometric ratios of angles between 0° and 45°.
Solution:
sin 67° + cos 75° = sin (90° – 23°) + cos (90° – 15°) = cos 23° + sin 15°

Question 1.
Express the trigonometric ratios sin A, sec A and tan A in terms of cot A.
Solution:
From trigonometric identity, cosec² A – cot² A = 1, we get Question 2.
Write all the other trigonometric ratios of ∠A in terms of sec A.
Solution:
Since sin² A + cos² A = 1, therefore Question 3.
Evaluate:
(i) (ii) sin 25° cos 65° + cos 25° sin 65°
Solution: (ii) sin 25° cos 65° + cos 25° sin 65° = sin 25° cos (90° – 25°) + cos 25° sin (90° – 25°)
= sin 25° sin 25° + cos 25° cos 25°
