### Exercise 4.2 Page No: 4.10

**1. Find the domain of definition of f(x) = cos ^{-1 }(x^{2} â€“ 4)**

**Solution:**

Given f(x) = cos ^{-1 }(x^{2} â€“ 4)

We know that domain of cos^{-1} (x^{2} â€“ 4) lies in the interval [-1, 1]

Therefore, we can write as

-1 â‰¤ x^{2} â€“ 4 â‰¤ 1

4 – 1 â‰¤ x^{2} â‰¤ 1 + 4

3 â‰¤ x^{2} â‰¤ 5

Â±âˆšÂ 3 â‰¤ x â‰¤ Â±âˆš5

– âˆš5 â‰¤ x â‰¤ – âˆš3 and âˆš3 â‰¤ x â‰¤ âˆš5

*Therefore domain of cos ^{-1} (x^{2} â€“ 4) is [- âˆš5, – âˆš3] âˆª [âˆš3, âˆš5]*

**2. Find the domain of f(x) = cos ^{-1} 2x + sin^{-1} x.**

**Solution:**

Given that f(x) = cos^{-1} 2x + sin^{-1} x.

Now we have to find the domain of f(x),

We know that domain of cos^{-1} x lies in the interval [-1, 1]

Also know that domain of sin^{-1} x lies in the interval [-1, 1]

Therefore, the domain of cos^{-1} (2x) lies in the interval [-1, 1]

Hence we can write as,

-1 â‰¤ 2x â‰¤ 1

– Â½ â‰¤ x â‰¤ Â½

*Hence, domain of cos ^{-1}(2x) + sin^{-1 }x lies in the interval [- Â½, Â½]*

### Exercise 4.3 Page No: 4.14

**1. Find the principal value of each of the following:**

**(i) tan ^{-1} (1/âˆš3)**

**(ii) tan ^{-1} (-1/âˆš3)**

**(iii) tan ^{-1} (cos (Ï€/2)) **

**(iv) tan ^{-1} (2 cos (2Ï€/3))**

**Solution:**

(i) Given tan^{-1} (1/âˆš3)

We know that for any x âˆˆ R, tan^{-1} represents an angle in (-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) whose tangent is x.

So, tan^{-1} (1/âˆš3) = an angle in (-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) whose tangent is (1/âˆš3)

But we know that the value is equal to Ï€/6

Therefore tan^{-1} (1/âˆš3) = Ï€/6

Hence the principal value of tan^{-1} (1/âˆš3) = Ï€/6

(ii) Given tan^{-1} (-1/âˆš3)

We know that for any x âˆˆ R, tan^{-1} represents an angle in (-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) whose tangent is x.

So, tan^{-1} (-1/âˆš3) = an angle in (-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) whose tangent is (1/âˆš3)

But we know that the value is equal to -Ï€/6

Therefore tan^{-1} (-1/âˆš3) = -Ï€/6

*Hence the principal value of tan ^{-1} (-1/âˆš3) = – Ï€/6*

(iii) Given that tan^{-1} (cos (Ï€/2))

But we know that cos (Ï€/2) = 0

We know that for any x âˆˆ R, tan^{-1} represents an angle in (-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) whose tangent is x.

Therefore tan^{-1} (0) = 0

*Hence the principal value of tan ^{-1} (cos (Ï€/2) is 0.*

(iv) Given that tan^{-1} (2 cos (2Ï€/3))

But we know that cos Ï€/3 = 1/2

So, cos (2Ï€/3) = -1/2

Therefore tan^{-1} (2 cos (2Ï€/3)) = tan^{-1} (2 Ã— – Â½)

= tan^{-1}(-1)

= – Ï€/4

*Hence, the principal value of tan ^{-1} (2 cos (2Ï€/3)) is – Ï€/4*

### Exercise 4.4 Page No: 4.18

**1. Find the principal value of each of the following:**

**(i) sec ^{-1} (-âˆš2)**

**(ii) sec ^{-1} (2)**

**(iii) sec ^{-1} (2 sin (3Ï€/4))**

**(iv) sec ^{-1} (2 tan (3Ï€/4))**

**Solution:**

(i) Given sec^{-1} (-âˆš2)

Now let y = sec^{-1} (-âˆš2)

Sec y = -âˆš2

We know that sec Ï€/4 = âˆš2

Therefore, -sec (Ï€/4) = -âˆš2

= sec (Ï€ – Ï€/4)

= sec (3Ï€/4)

Thus the range of principal value of sec^{-1} is [0, Ï€] â€“ {Ï€/2}

And sec (3Ï€/4) = – âˆš2

*Hence the principal value of sec ^{-1} (-âˆš2) is 3Ï€/4*

(ii) Given sec^{-1} (2)

Let y = sec^{-1} (2)

Sec y = 2

= Sec Ï€/3

Therefore the range of principal value of sec^{-1} is [0, Ï€] â€“ {Ï€/2} and sec Ï€/3 = 2

*Thus the principal value of sec ^{-1} (2) is Ï€/3*

(iii) Given sec^{-1} (2 sin (3Ï€/4))

But we know that sin (3Ï€/4) = 1/âˆš2

Therefore 2 sin (3Ï€/4) = 2 Ã— 1/âˆš2

2 sin (3Ï€/4) = âˆš2

Therefore by substituting above values in sec^{-1} (2 sin (3Ï€/4)), we get

Sec^{-1 }(âˆš2)

Let Sec^{-1 }(âˆš2) = y

Sec y = âˆš2

Sec (Ï€/4) = âˆš2

Therefore range of principal value of sec^{-1} is [0, Ï€] â€“ {Ï€/2} and sec (Ï€/4) = âˆš2

*Thus the principal value of sec ^{-1} (2 sin (3Ï€/4)) is Ï€/4.*

(iv) Given sec^{-1} (2 tan (3Ï€/4))

But we know that tan (3Ï€/4) = -1

Therefore, 2 tan (3Ï€/4) = 2 Ã— -1

2 tan (3Ï€/4) = -2

By substituting these values in sec^{-1} (2 tan (3Ï€/4)), we get

Sec^{-1} (-2)

Now let y = Sec^{-1} (-2)

Sec y = – 2

– sec (Ï€/3) = -2

= sec (Ï€ â€“ Ï€/3)

= sec (2Ï€/3)

Therefore the range of principal value of sec^{-1} is [0, Ï€] â€“ {Ï€/2} and sec (2Ï€/3) = -2

*Thus, the principal value of sec ^{-1} (2 tan (3Ï€/4)) is (2Ï€/3).*

### Exercise 4.5 Page No: 4.21

**1. Find the principal values of each of the following:**

**(i) cosec ^{-1} (-âˆš2)**

**(ii) cosec ^{-1} (-2)**

**(iii) cosec ^{-1} (2/âˆš3)**

**(iv) cosec ^{-1} (2 cos (2Ï€/3))**

**Solution:**

(i) Given cosec^{-1} (-âˆš2)

Let y = cosec^{-1} (-âˆš2)

Cosec y = -âˆš2

– Cosec y = âˆš2

– Cosec (Ï€/4) = âˆš2

– Cosec (Ï€/4) = cosec (-Ï€/4) [since â€“cosec Î¸ = cosec (-Î¸)]

The range of principal value of cosec^{-1} [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2] â€“ {0} and cosec (-Ï€/4) = – âˆš2

Cosec (-Ï€/4) = – âˆš2

*Therefore the principal value of cosec ^{-1} (-âˆš2) is – Ï€/4*

(ii) Given cosec^{-1} (-2)

Let y = cosec^{-1} (-2)

Cosec y = -2

– Cosec y = 2

– Cosec (Ï€/6) = 2

– Cosec (Ï€/6) = cosec (-Ï€/6) [since â€“cosec Î¸ = cosec (-Î¸)]

The range of principal value of cosec^{-1} [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2] â€“ {0} and cosec (-Ï€/6) = – 2

Cosec (-Ï€/6) = – 2

*Therefore the principal value of cosec ^{-1} (-2) is – Ï€/6*

(iii) Given cosec^{-1} (2/âˆš3)

Let y = cosec^{-1} (2/âˆš3)

Cosec y = (2/âˆš3)

Cosec (Ï€/3) = (2/âˆš3)

Therefore range of principal value of cosec^{-1} is [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2] â€“ {0} and cosec (Ï€/3) = (2/âˆš3)

*Thus, the principal value of cosec ^{-1} (2/âˆš3) is Ï€/3*

(iv) Given cosec^{-1} (2 cos (2Ï€/3))

But we know that cos (2Ï€/3) = – Â½

Therefore 2 cos (2Ï€/3) = 2 Ã— – Â½

2 cos (2Ï€/3) = -1

By substituting these values in cosec^{-1} (2 cos (2Ï€/3)) we get,

Cosec^{-1} (-1)

Let y = cosec^{-1} (-1)

– Cosec y = 1

– Cosec (Ï€/2) = cosec (-Ï€/2) [since â€“cosec Î¸ = cosec (-Î¸)]

The range of principal value of cosec^{-1} [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2] â€“ {0} and cosec (-Ï€/2) = – 1

Cosec (-Ï€/2) = – 1

*Therefore the principal value of cosec ^{-1} (2 cos (2Ï€/3)) is – Ï€/2*

### Exercise 4.6 Page No: 4.24

**1. Find the principal values of each of the following:**

**(i) cot ^{-1}(-âˆš3)**

**(ii) Cot ^{-1}(âˆš3)**

**(iii) cot ^{-1}(-1/âˆš3)**

**(iv) cot ^{-1}(tan 3Ï€/4)**

**Solution:**

(i) Given cot^{-1}(-âˆš3)

Let y = cot^{-1}(-âˆš3)

– Cot (Ï€/6) = âˆš3

= Cot (Ï€ â€“ Ï€/6)

= cot (5Ï€/6)

The range of principal value of cot^{-1} is (0, Ï€) and cot (5 Ï€/6) = – âˆš3

*Thus, the principal value of cot ^{-1} (- âˆš3) is 5Ï€/6*

(ii) Given Cot^{-1}(âˆš3)

Let y = cot^{-1}(âˆš3)

Cot (Ï€/6) = âˆš3

The range of principal value of cot^{-1} is (0, Ï€) and

*Thus, the principal value of cot ^{-1} (âˆš3) is Ï€/6*

(iii) Given cot^{-1}(-1/âˆš3)

Let y = cot^{-1}(-1/âˆš3)

Cot y = (-1/âˆš3)

– Cot (Ï€/3) = 1/âˆš3

= Cot (Ï€ â€“ Ï€/3)

= cot (2Ï€/3)

The range of principal value of cot^{-1}(0, Ï€) and cot (2Ï€/3) = – 1/âˆš3

*Therefore the principal value of cot ^{-1}(-1/âˆš3) is 2Ï€/3*

(iv) Given cot^{-1}(tan 3Ï€/4)

But we know that tan 3Ï€/4 = -1

By substituting this value in cot^{-1}(tan 3Ï€/4) we get

Cot^{-1}(-1)

Now, let y = cot^{-1}(-1)

Cot y = (-1)

– Cot (Ï€/4) = 1

= Cot (Ï€ â€“ Ï€/4)

= cot (3Ï€/4)

The range of principal value of cot^{-1}(0, Ï€) and cot (3Ï€/4) = – 1

*Therefore the principal value of cot ^{-1}(tan 3Ï€/4) is 3Ï€/4*

### Exercise 4.7 Page No: 4.42

**(i) sin ^{-1}(sin Ï€/6)**

**(iii) sin ^{-1}(sin 5Ï€/6)**

**(iv) sin ^{-1}(sin 13Ï€/7)**

**(v) sin ^{-1}(sin 17Ï€/8)**

**(vi) sin ^{-1}{(sin – 17Ï€/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 Ï€/6)

We know that the value of sin Ï€/6 is Â½

By substituting this value in sin^{-1}(sin Ï€/6)

We get, sin^{-1} (1/2)

Now let y = sin^{-1} (1/2)

Sin (Ï€/6) = Â½

The range of principal value of sin^{-1}(-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) and sin (Ï€/6) = Â½

*Therefore sin ^{-1}(sin Ï€/6) = Ï€/6*

(ii) Given sin^{-1}(sin 7Ï€/6)

But we know that sin 7Ï€/6 = – Â½

By substituting this in sin^{-1}(sin 7Ï€/6) we get,

Sin^{-1} (-1/2)

Now let y = sin^{-1} (-1/2)

– Sin y = Â½

– Sin (Ï€/6) = Â½

– Sin (Ï€/6) = sin (- Ï€/6)

The range of principal value of sin^{-1}(-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) and sin (- Ï€/6) = – Â½

*Therefore sin ^{-1}(sin 7Ï€/6) = – Ï€/6*

(iii) Given sin^{-1}(sin 5Ï€/6)

We know that the value of sin 5Ï€/6 is Â½

By substituting this value in sin^{-1}(sin 5Ï€/6)

We get, sin^{-1} (1/2)

Now let y = sin^{-1} (1/2)

Sin (Ï€/6) = Â½

The range of principal value of sin^{-1}(-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) and sin (Ï€/6) = Â½

*Therefore sin ^{-1}(sin 5Ï€/6) = Ï€/6*

(iv) Given sin^{-1}(sin 13Ï€/7)

Given question can be written as sin (2Ï€ â€“ Ï€/7)

Sin (2Ï€ â€“ Ï€/7) can be written as sin (-Ï€/7) [since sin (2Ï€ â€“ Î¸) = sin (-Î¸)]

By substituting these values in sin^{-1}(sin 13Ï€/7) we get sin^{-1}(sin – Ï€/7)

As sin^{-1}(sin x) = x with x âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

*Therefore sin ^{-1}(sin 13Ï€/7) = – Ï€/7*

(v) Given sin^{-1}(sin 17Ï€/8)

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

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

By substituting these values in sin^{-1}(sin 17Ï€/8) we get sin^{-1}(sin Ï€/8)

As sin^{-1}(sin x) = x with x âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

*Therefore sin ^{-1}(sin 17Ï€/8) = Ï€/8*

(vi) Given sin^{-1}{(sin – 17Ï€/8)}

But we know that â€“ sin Î¸ = sin (-Î¸)

Therefore (sin -17Ï€/8) = – sin 17Ï€/8

– Sin 17Ï€/8 = – sin (2Ï€ + Ï€/8) [since sin (2Ï€ â€“ Î¸) = -sin (Î¸)]

It can also be written as â€“ sin (Ï€/8)

â€“ Sin (Ï€/8) = sin (-Ï€/8) [since â€“ sin Î¸ = sin (-Î¸)]

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

Sin^{-1}(sin – Ï€/8)

As sin^{-1}(sin x) = x with x âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

*Therefore sin ^{-1}(sin -Ï€/8) = – Ï€/8*

(vii) Given sin^{-1}(sin 3)

We know that sin^{-1}(sin x) = x with x âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/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 (Ï€ â€“ x) = sin (x)

Hence sin (Ï€ â€“ 3) = sin (3) also Ï€ â€“ 3 âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

*Sin ^{-1}(sin 3) = Ï€ â€“ 3*

(viii) Given sin^{-1}(sin 4)

We know that sin^{-1}(sin x) = x with x âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/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 (Ï€ â€“ x) = sin (x)

Hence sin (Ï€ â€“ 4) = sin (4) also Ï€ â€“ 4 âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

*Sin ^{-1}(sin 4) = Ï€ â€“ 4*

(ix) Given sin^{-1}(sin 12)

We know that sin^{-1}(sin x) = x with x âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/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 (2nÏ€ â€“ x) = sin (-x)

Hence sin (2nÏ€ â€“ 12) = sin (-12)

Here n = 2 also 12 â€“ 4Ï€ âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

*Sin ^{-1}(sin 12) = 12 â€“ 4Ï€*

(x) Given sin^{-1}(sin 2)

^{-1}(sin x) = x with x âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/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 (Ï€ â€“ x) = sin (x)

Hence sin (Ï€ â€“ 2) = sin (2) also Ï€ â€“ 2 âˆˆ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

*Sin ^{-1}(sin 2) = Ï€ â€“ 2*

**2. Evaluate each of the following:**

**(i) cos ^{-1}{cos (-Ï€/4)}**

**(ii) cos ^{-1}(cos 5Ï€/4)**

**(iii) cos ^{-1}(cos 4Ï€/3)**

**(iv) cos ^{-1}(cos 13Ï€/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 (-Ï€/4)}

We know that cos (-Ï€/4) = cos (Ï€/4) [since cos (-Î¸) = cos Î¸

Also know that cos (Ï€/4) = 1/âˆš2

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

Cos^{-1}(1/âˆš2)

Now let y = cos^{-1}(1/âˆš2)

Therefore cos y = 1/âˆš2

Hence range of principal value of cos^{-1} is [0, Ï€] and cos (Ï€/4) = 1/âˆš2

*Therefore cos ^{-1}{cos (-Ï€/4)} = Ï€/4*

(ii) Given cos^{-1}(cos 5Ï€/4)

But we know that cos (5Ï€/4) = -1/âˆš2

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

Cos^{-1}(-1/âˆš2)

Now let y = cos^{-1}(-1/âˆš2)

Therefore cos y = – 1/âˆš2

– Cos (Ï€/4) = 1/âˆš2

Cos (Ï€ – Ï€/4) = – 1/âˆš2

Cos (3 Ï€/4) = – 1/âˆš2

Hence range of principal value of cos^{-1} is [0, Ï€] and cos (3Ï€/4) = -1/âˆš2

*Therefore cos ^{-1}{cos (5Ï€/4)} = 3Ï€/4*

(iii) Given cos^{-1}(cos 4Ï€/3)

But we know that cos (4Ï€/3) = -1/2

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

Cos^{-1}(-1/2)

Now let y = cos^{-1}(-1/2)

Therefore cos y = – 1/2

– Cos (Ï€/3) = 1/2

Cos (Ï€ – Ï€/3) = – 1/2

Cos (2Ï€/3) = – 1/2

Hence range of principal value of cos^{-1} is [0, Ï€] and cos (2Ï€/3) = -1/2

*Therefore cos ^{-1}{cos (4Ï€/3)} = 2Ï€/3*

(iv) Given cos^{-1}(cos 13Ï€/6)

But we know that cos (13Ï€/6) = âˆš3/2

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

Cos^{-1}(âˆš3/2)

Now let y = cos^{-1}(âˆš3/2)

Therefore cos y = âˆš3/2

Cos (Ï€/6) = âˆš3/2

Hence range of principal value of cos^{-1} is [0, Ï€] and cos (Ï€/6) = âˆš3/2

*Therefore cos ^{-1}{cos (13Ï€/6)} = Ï€/6*

(v) Given cos^{-1}(cos 3)

We know that cos^{-1}(cos Î¸) = Î¸ if 0 â‰¤ Î¸ â‰¤ Ï€

Therefore by applying this in given question we get,

*Cos ^{-1}(cos 3) = 3, 3 âˆˆ [0, Ï€]*

(vi) Given cos^{-1}(cos 4)

We have cos^{â€“1}(cos x) = x if xÂ ÏµÂ [0, Ï€] â‰ˆ [0, 3.14]

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

We know that cos (2Ï€ â€“ x) = cos(x)

Thus, cos (2Ï€ â€“ 4) = cos (4) so 2Ï€â€“4 belongs in [0, Ï€]

*Hence cos ^{â€“1}(cos 4) = 2Ï€ â€“ 4*

(vii) Given cos^{-1}(cos 5)

We have cos^{â€“1}(cos x) = x if xÂ ÏµÂ [0, Ï€] â‰ˆ [0, 3.14]

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

We know that cos (2Ï€ â€“ x) = cos(x)

Thus, cos (2Ï€ â€“ 5) = cos (5) so 2Ï€â€“5 belongs in [0, Ï€]

*Hence cos ^{â€“1}(cos 5) = 2Ï€ â€“ 5*

(viii) Given cos^{-1}(cos 12)

Cos^{â€“1}(cos x) = x if xÂ ÏµÂ [0, Ï€] â‰ˆ [0, 3.14]

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

We know cos (2nÏ€ â€“ x) = cos (x)

Cos (2nÏ€ â€“ 12) = cos (12)

Here n = 2.

Also 4Ï€ â€“ 12 belongs in [0, Ï€]

*âˆ´Â cos ^{â€“1}(cos 12) = 4Ï€ â€“ 12*

**3. Evaluate each of the following:**

**(i) tan ^{-1}(tan Ï€/3)**

**(ii) tan ^{-1}(tan 6Ï€/7)**

**(iii) tan ^{-1}(tan 7Ï€/6)**

**(iv) tan ^{-1}(tan 9Ï€/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 Ï€/3)

As tan^{-1}(tan x) = x if x Ïµ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

By applying this condition in the given question we get,

*Tan ^{-1}(tan Ï€/3) = Ï€/3*

(ii) Given tan^{-1}(tan 6Ï€/7)

We know that tan 6Ï€/7 can be written as (Ï€ â€“ Ï€/7)

Tan (Ï€ â€“ Ï€/7) = – tan Ï€/7

We know that tan^{-1}(tan x) = x if x Ïµ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

*Tan ^{-1}(tan 6Ï€/7) = – Ï€/7*

(iii) Given tan^{-1}(tan 7Ï€/6)

We know that tan 7Ï€/6 = 1/âˆš3

By substituting this value in tan^{-1}(tan 7Ï€/6) we get,

Tan^{-1} (1/âˆš3)

Now let tan^{-1} (1/âˆš3) = y

Tan y = 1/âˆš3

Tan (Ï€/6) = 1/âˆš3

The range of the principal value of tan^{-1} is (-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) and tan (Ï€/6) = 1/âˆš3

*Therefore tan ^{-1}(tan 7Ï€/6) = Ï€/6*

(iv) Given tan^{-1}(tan 9Ï€/4)

We know that tan 9Ï€/4 = 1

By substituting this value in tan^{-1}(tan 9Ï€/4) we get,

Tan^{-1} (1)

Now let tan^{-1} (1) = y

Tan y = 1

Tan (Ï€/4) = 1

The range of the principal value of tan^{-1} is (-Ï€/2, Ï€/2) and tan (Ï€/4) = 1

*Therefore tan ^{-1}(tan 9Ï€/4) = Ï€/4*

(v) Given tan^{-1}(tan 1)

But we have tan^{-1}(tan x) = x if x Ïµ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/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 Ïµ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

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

We also have tan (Ï€ â€“ Î¸) = â€“tan (Î¸)

Therefore tan (Î¸ â€“ Ï€) = tan (Î¸)

Tan (2 â€“ Ï€) = tan (2)

Now 2 â€“ Ï€ is in the given range

*Hence tan ^{â€“1}Â (tan 2) = 2 â€“ Ï€*

(vii) Given tan^{-1}(tan 4)

As tan^{-1}(tan x) = x if x Ïµ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

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

We also have tan (Ï€ â€“ Î¸) = â€“tan (Î¸)

Therefore tan (Î¸ â€“ Ï€) = tan (Î¸)

Tan (4 â€“ Ï€) = tan (4)

Now 4 â€“ Ï€ is in the given range

*Hence tan ^{â€“1}Â (tan 2) = 4 â€“ Ï€*

(viii) Given tan^{-1}(tan 12)

As tan^{-1}(tan x) = x if x Ïµ [-Ï€/2, Ï€/2]

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

We know that tan (2nÏ€ â€“ Î¸) = â€“tan (Î¸)

Tan (Î¸ â€“ 2nÏ€) = tan (Î¸)

Here n = 2

Tan (12 â€“ 4Ï€) = tan (12)

Now 12 â€“ 4Ï€ is in the given range

*âˆ´Â tan ^{â€“1}Â (tan 12) = 12 â€“ 4Ï€.*

### Exercise 4.8 Page No: 4.54

**1. Evaluate each of the following:**

**(i) sin (sin ^{-1} 7/25)**

**(ii) Sin (cos ^{-1} 5/13)**

**(iii) Sin (tan ^{-1} 24/7)**

**(iv) Sin (sec ^{-1} 17/8)**

**(v) Cosec (cos ^{-1} 8/17)**

**(vi) Sec (sin ^{-1} 12/13)**

**(vii) Tan (cos ^{-1} 8/17)**

**(viii) cot (cos ^{-1} 3/5)**

**(ix) Cos (tan ^{-1} 24/7)**

**Solution:**

(i) Given sin (sin^{-1} 7/25)

Now let y = sin^{-1} 7/25

Sin y = 7/25 where y âˆˆ [0, Ï€/2]

Substituting these values in sin (sin^{-1} 7/25) we get

*Sin (sin ^{-1} 7/25) = 7/25*

(ii) Given Sin (cos^{-1} 5/13)

(iii) Given Sin (tan^{-1} 24/7)

(iv) Given Sin (sec^{-1} 17/8)

(v) Given Cosec (cos^{-1} 8/17)

Let cos^{-1}(8/17) = y

cos y = 8/17 where y âˆˆ [0, Ï€/2]

Now, we have to find

Cosec (cos^{-1} 8/17) = cosec y

We know that,

sin^{2} Î¸ + cos^{2} Î¸ = 1

sin^{2} Î¸ = âˆš (1 â€“ cos^{2} Î¸)

So,

sin y = âˆš (1 â€“ cos^{2} y)

= âˆš (1 â€“ (8/17)^{2})

= âˆš (1 â€“ 64/289)

= âˆš (289 â€“ 64/289)

= âˆš (225/289)

= 15/17

Hence,

Cosec y = 1/sin y = 1/ (15/17) = 17/15

Therefore,

*Cosec (cos ^{-1} 8/17) = 17/15*

(vi) Given Sec (sin^{-1} 12/13)

(vii) Given Tan (cos^{-1} 8/17)

(viii) Given cot (cos^{-1} 3/5)

(ix) Given Cos (tan^{-1} 24/7)

.

**2. If cos ^{-1} x + cos^{-1} y = Ï€/4, find the value of sin^{-1} x + sin^{-1} y.**

**Solution:**

**3. If sin ^{-1} x + sin^{-1} y = Ï€/3 and cos^{-1} x – cos^{-1} y = Ï€/6, find the values of x and y.**

**Solution:**

Given sin^{-1} x + sin^{-1} y = Ï€/3 â€¦â€¦. Equation (i)

And cos^{-1} x – cos^{-1} y = Ï€/6 â€¦â€¦â€¦ Equation (ii)

**4. If cot (cos ^{-1 }3/5 + sin^{-1} x) = 0, find the value of x.**

**Solution:**

Given cot (cos^{-1 }3/5 + sin^{-1} x) = 0

On rearranging we get,

(cos^{-1 }3/5 + sin^{-1} x) = cot^{-1} (0)

(Cos^{-1 }3/5 + sin^{-1} x) = Ï€/2

We know that cos^{-1 }x + sin^{-1} x = Ï€/2

Then sin^{-1} x = Ï€/2 – cos^{-1 }x

Substituting the above in (cos^{-1 }3/5 + sin^{-1} x) = Ï€/2 we get,

(Cos^{-1 }3/5 + Ï€/2 – cos^{-1 }x) = Ï€/2

Now on rearranging we get,

(Cos^{-1 }3/5 – cos^{-1 }x) = Ï€/2 – Ï€/2

(Cos^{-1 }3/5 – cos^{-1 }x) = 0

Therefore Cos^{-1 }3/5 = cos^{-1 }x

On comparing the above equation we get,

*x = 3/5*

**5. If (sin ^{-1} x)^{2} + (cos^{-1} x)^{2} = 17 Ï€^{2}/36, find x.**

**Solution:**

Given (sin^{-1} x)^{2} + (cos^{-1} x)^{2} = 17 Ï€^{2}/36

We know that cos^{-1 }x + sin^{-1} x = Ï€/2

Then cos^{-1} x = Ï€/2 – sin^{-1 }x

Substituting this in (sin^{-1} x)^{2} + (cos^{-1} x)^{2} = 17 Ï€^{2}/36 we get

(sin^{-1} x)^{2} + (Ï€/2 – sin^{-1 }x)^{2} = 17 Ï€^{2}/36

Let y = sin^{-1} x

y^{2} + ((Ï€/2) â€“ y)^{2} = 17 Ï€^{2}/36

y^{2} + Ï€^{2}/4 â€“ y^{2} â€“ 2y ((Ï€/2) â€“ y) = 17 Ï€^{2}/36

Ï€^{2}/4 â€“ Ï€y + 2 y^{2 }= 17 Ï€^{2}/36

On rearranging and simplifying, we get

2y^{2} – Ï€y + 2/9 Ï€^{2} = 0

18y^{2} – 9 Ï€y + 2 Ï€^{2} = 0

18y^{2} – 12 Ï€y + 3 Ï€y + 2 Ï€^{2} = 0

6y (3y – 2Ï€) + Ï€ (3y – 2Ï€) = 0

Now, (3y – 2Ï€) = 0 and (6y + Ï€) = 0

Therefore y = 2Ï€/3 and y = – Ï€/6

Now substituting y = – Ï€/6 in y = sin^{-1} x we get

sin^{-1} x = – Ï€/6

x = sin (- Ï€/6)

x = -1/2

Now substituting y = -2Ï€/3 in y = sin^{-1} x we get

x = sin (2Ï€/3)

x = âˆš3/2

Now substituting x = âˆš3/2 in (sin^{-1} x)^{2} + (cos^{-1} x)^{2} = 17 Ï€^{2}/36 we get,

= Ï€/3 + Ï€/6

= Ï€/2 which is not equal to 17 Ï€^{2}/36

So we have to neglect this root.

Now substituting x = -1/2 in (sin^{-1} x)^{2} + (cos^{-1} x)^{2} = 17 Ï€^{2}/36 we get,

= Ï€^{2}/36 + 4 Ï€^{2}/9

= 17 Ï€^{2}/36

*Hence x = -1/2.*
