Question

If 1+cosθ1cosθ=cosec θ+cotθ, where θ=kπ8,kN, then the number of possible value(s) of θ[0,2π] is 


Solution

Given 
1+cosθ1cosθ=cosec θ+cotθ
So, 
θ{0,π,2π}
Now, 
1+cosθ1cosθ×1+cosθ1+cosθ=cosec θ+cotθ(1+cosθ)21cos2θ=cosec θ+cotθ|1+cosθ||sinθ|=cosec θ+cotθ1+cosθ|sinθ|=cosec θ+cotθ   (1+cosθ0)1+cosθ|sinθ|=1+cosθsinθ
It is possible if 
sinθ>0π>θ>0π>kπ8>0k(0,8)

Hence, there are 7 possible values of k.
