1. Evaluate each of the following:

(i) sin-1(sin π/6)

(ii) sin-1(sin 7π/6)

(iii) sin-1(sin 5π/6)

(iv) sin-1(sin 13π/7)

(v) sin-1(sin 17π/8)

(vi) sin-1{(sin – 17π/8)}

(vii) sin-1(sin 3)

(viii) sin-1(sin 4)

(ix) sin-1(sin 12)

(x) sin-1(sin 2)

Solution:

(i) Given sin-1(sin π/6)

We know that the value of sin π/6 is ½

By substituting this value in sin-1(sin π/6)

We get, sin-1 (1/2)

Now let y = sin-1 (1/2)

Sin (π/6) = ½

The range of principal value of sin-1(-π/2, π/2) and sin (π/6) = ½

Therefore sin-1(sin π/6) = π/6

(ii) Given sin-1(sin 7π/6)

But we know that sin 7π/6 = – ½

By substituting this in sin-1(sin 7π/6) we get,

Sin-1 (-1/2)

Now let y = sin-1 (-1/2)

– Sin y = ½

– Sin (π/6) = ½

– Sin (π/6) = sin (- π/6)

The range of principal value of sin-1(-π/2, π/2) and sin (- π/6) = – ½

Therefore sin-1(sin 7π/6) = – π/6

(iii) Given sin-1(sin 5π/6)

We know that the value of sin 5π/6 is ½

By substituting this value in sin-1(sin 5π/6)

We get, sin-1 (1/2)

Now let y = sin-1 (1/2)

Sin (π/6) = ½

The range of principal value of sin-1(-π/2, π/2) and sin (π/6) = ½

Therefore sin-1(sin 5π/6) = π/6

(iv) Given sin-1(sin 13π/7)

Given question can be written as sin (2π – π/7)

Sin (2π – π/7) can be written as sin (-π/7) [since sin (2π – θ) = sin (-θ)]

By substituting these values in sin-1(sin 13π/7) we get sin-1(sin – π/7)

As sin-1(sin x) = x with x ∈ [-π/2, π/2]

Therefore sin-1(sin 13π/7) = – π/7

(v) Given sin-1(sin 17π/8)

Given question can be written as sin (2π + π/8)

Sin (2π + π/8) can be written as sin (π/8)

By substituting these values in sin-1(sin 17π/8) we get sin-1(sin π/8)

As sin-1(sin x) = x with x ∈ [-π/2, π/2]

Therefore sin-1(sin 17π/8) = π/8

(vi) Given sin-1{(sin – 17π/8)}

But we know that – sin θ = sin (-θ)

Therefore (sin -17π/8) = – sin 17π/8

– Sin 17π/8 = – sin (2π + π/8) [since sin (2π – θ) = -sin (θ)]

It can also be written as – sin (π/8)

– Sin (π/8) = sin (-π/8) [since – sin θ = sin (-θ)]

By substituting these values in sin-1{(sin – 17π/8)} we get,

Sin-1(sin – π/8)

As sin-1(sin x) = x with x ∈ [-π/2, π/2]

Therefore sin-1(sin -π/8) = – π/8

(vii) Given sin-1(sin 3)

We know that sin-1(sin x) = x with x ∈ [-π/2, π/2] which is approximately equal to [-1.57, 1.57]

But here x = 3, which does not lie on the above range,

Therefore we know that sin (π – x) = sin (x)

Hence sin (π – 3) = sin (3) also π – 3 ∈ [-π/2, π/2]

Sin-1(sin 3) = π – 3

(viii) Given sin-1(sin 4)

We know that sin-1(sin x) = x with x ∈ [-π/2, π/2] which is approximately equal to [-1.57, 1.57]

But here x = 4, which does not lie on the above range,

Therefore we know that sin (π – x) = sin (x)

Hence sin (π – 4) = sin (4) also π – 4 ∈ [-π/2, π/2]

Sin-1(sin 4) = π – 4

(ix) Given sin-1(sin 12)

We know that sin-1(sin x) = x with x ∈ [-π/2, π/2] which is approximately equal to [-1.57, 1.57]

But here x = 12, which does not lie on the above range,

Therefore we know that sin (2nπ – x) = sin (-x)

Hence sin (2nπ – 12) = sin (-12)

Here n = 2 also 12 – 4π ∈ [-π/2, π/2]

Sin-1(sin 12) = 12 – 4π

(x) Given sin-1(sin 2)

We know that sin-1(sin x) = x with x ∈ [-π/2, π/2] which is approximately equal to [-1.57, 1.57]

But here x = 2, which does not lie on the above range,

Therefore we know that sin (π – x) = sin (x)

Hence sin (π – 2) = sin (2) also π – 2 ∈ [-π/2, π/2]

Sin-1(sin 2) = π – 2

2. Evaluate each of the following:

(i) cos-1{cos (-π/4)}

(ii) cos-1(cos 5π/4)

(iii) cos-1(cos 4π/3)

(iv) cos-1(cos 13π/6)

(v) cos-1(cos 3)

(vi) cos-1(cos 4)

(vii) cos-1(cos 5)

(viii) cos-1(cos 12)

Solution:

(i) Given cos-1{cos (-π/4)}

We know that cos (-π/4) = cos (π/4) [since cos (-θ) = cos θ

Also know that cos (π/4) = 1/√2

By substituting these values in cos-1{cos (-π/4)} we get,

Cos-1(1/√2)

Now let y = cos-1(1/√2)

Therefore cos y = 1/√2

Hence range of principal value of cos-1 is [0, π] and cos (π/4) = 1/√2

Therefore cos-1{cos (-π/4)} = π/4

(ii) Given cos-1(cos 5π/4)

But we know that cos (5π/4) = -1/√2

By substituting these values in cos-1{cos (5π/4)} we get,

Cos-1(-1/√2)

Now let y = cos-1(-1/√2)

Therefore cos y = – 1/√2

– Cos (π/4) = 1/√2

Cos (π – π/4) = – 1/√2

Cos (3 π/4) = – 1/√2

Hence range of principal value of cos-1 is [0, π] and cos (3π/4) = -1/√2

Therefore cos-1{cos (5π/4)} = 3π/4

(iii) Given cos-1(cos 4π/3)

But we know that cos (4π/3) = -1/2

By substituting these values in cos-1{cos (4π/3)} we get,

Cos-1(-1/2)

Now let y = cos-1(-1/2)

Therefore cos y = – 1/2

– Cos (π/3) = 1/2

Cos (π – π/3) = – 1/2

Cos (2π/3) = – 1/2

Hence range of principal value of cos-1 is [0, π] and cos (2π/3) = -1/2

Therefore cos-1{cos (4π/3)} = 2π/3

(iv) Given cos-1(cos 13π/6)

But we know that cos (13π/6) = √3/2

By substituting these values in cos-1{cos (13π/6)} we get,

Cos-1(√3/2)

Now let y = cos-1(√3/2)

Therefore cos y = √3/2

Cos (π/6) = √3/2

Hence range of principal value of cos-1 is [0, π] and cos (π/6) = √3/2

Therefore cos-1{cos (13π/6)} = π/6

(v) Given cos-1(cos 3)

We know that cos-1(cos θ) = θ if 0 ≤ θ ≤ π

Therefore by applying this in given question we get,

Cos-1(cos 3) = 3, 3 ∈ [0, π]

(vi) Given cos-1(cos 4)

We have cos–1(cos x) = x if x ϵ [0, π] ≈ [0, 3.14]

And here x = 4 which does not lie in the above range.

We know that cos (2π – x) = cos(x)

Thus, cos (2π – 4) = cos (4) so 2π–4 belongs in [0, π]

Hence cos–1(cos 4) = 2π – 4

(vii) Given cos-1(cos 5)

We have cos–1(cos x) = x if x ϵ [0, π] ≈ [0, 3.14]

And here x = 5 which does not lie in the above range.

We know that cos (2π – x) = cos(x)

Thus, cos (2π – 5) = cos (5) so 2π–5 belongs in [0, π]

Hence cos–1(cos 5) = 2π – 5

(viii) Given cos-1(cos 12)

Cos–1(cos x) = x if x ϵ [0, π] ≈ [0, 3.14]

And here x = 12 which does not lie in the above range.

We know cos (2nπ – x) = cos (x)

Cos (2nπ – 12) = cos (12)

Here n = 2.

Also 4π – 12 belongs in [0, π]

∴ cos–1(cos 12) = 4π – 12

3. Evaluate each of the following:

(i) tan-1(tan π/3)

(ii) tan-1(tan 6π/7)

(iii) tan-1(tan 7π/6)

(iv) tan-1(tan 9π/4)

(v) tan-1(tan 1)

(vi) tan-1(tan 2)

(vii) tan-1(tan 4)

(viii) tan-1(tan 12)

Solution:

(i) Given tan-1(tan π/3)

As tan-1(tan x) = x if x ϵ [-π/2, π/2]

By applying this condition in the given question we get,

Tan-1(tan π/3) = π/3

(ii) Given tan-1(tan 6π/7)

We know that tan 6π/7 can be written as (π – π/7)

Tan (π – π/7) = – tan π/7

We know that tan-1(tan x) = x if x ϵ [-π/2, π/2]

Tan-1(tan 6π/7) = – π/7

(iii) Given tan-1(tan 7π/6)

We know that tan 7π/6 = 1/√3

By substituting this value in tan-1(tan 7π/6) we get,

Tan-1 (1/√3)

Now let tan-1 (1/√3) = y

Tan y = 1/√3

Tan (π/6) = 1/√3

The range of the principal value of tan-1 is (-π/2, π/2) and tan (π/6) = 1/√3

Therefore tan-1(tan 7π/6) = π/6

(iv) Given tan-1(tan 9π/4)

We know that tan 9π/4 = 1

By substituting this value in tan-1(tan 9π/4) we get,

Tan-1 (1)

Now let tan-1 (1) = y

Tan y = 1

Tan (π/4) = 1

The range of the principal value of tan-1 is (-π/2, π/2) and tan (π/4) = 1

Therefore tan-1(tan 9π/4) = π/4

(v) Given tan-1(tan 1)

But we have tan-1(tan x) = x if x ϵ [-π/2, π/2]

By substituting this condition in given question

Tan-1(tan 1) = 1

(vi) Given tan-1(tan 2)

As tan-1(tan x) = x if x ϵ [-π/2, π/2]

But here x = 2 which does not belongs to above range

We also have tan (π – θ) = –tan (θ)

Therefore tan (θ – π) = tan (θ)

Tan (2 – π) = tan (2)

Now 2 – π is in the given range

Hence tan–1 (tan 2) = 2 – π

(vii) Given tan-1(tan 4)

As tan-1(tan x) = x if x ϵ [-π/2, π/2]

But here x = 4 which does not belongs to above range

We also have tan (π – θ) = –tan (θ)

Therefore tan (θ – π) = tan (θ)

Tan (4 – π) = tan (4)

Now 4 – π is in the given range

Hence tan–1 (tan 2) = 4 – π

(viii) Given tan-1(tan 12)

As tan-1(tan x) = x if x ϵ [-π/2, π/2]

But here x = 12 which does not belongs to above range

We know that tan (2nπ – θ) = –tan (θ)

Tan (θ – 2nπ) = tan (θ)

Here n = 2

Tan (12 – 4π) = tan (12)

Now 12 – 4π is in the given range

∴ tan–1 (tan 12) = 12 – 4π.
