### (i) sin 75Â°

Solution:

As, we don’t know the angle value for 75Â°, so we will break into the angles which we know.

75Â° = 30Â° + 45Â°, so lets use this and solve for sin(30Â° + 45Â°)

Using the trigonometric formula,

sin (A+B) = sin A cos B + cos A sin B

sin(30Â° + 45Â°) = sin 30Â° cos 45Â° + cos 30Â° sin 45Â°

Subtracting (2) from (1) and using identity formulae, we get

2 cos A cos B – 2 sin A sin B = cos (A+B) + cos (A-B) – (cos (A-B) – cos (A+B))

2 cos A cos B – 2 sin A sin B = 2 cos (A+B)

Solution:

Taking LHS in consideration, we get

= sin(n + 1)x sin(n + 2)x + cos(n + 1)x cos(n + 2)x

As, here there is multiplication of cos cos and sin sin, we will use Defactorisation Formulae,

2 cos A cos B = cos (A+B) + cos (A-B) and, ……………….(1)

2 sin A sin B = cos (A-B) – cos (A+B) ……………….(2)

Multiply and divide LHS by 2, we get

=(sin(n + 1)x sin(n + 2)x + cos(n + 1)x cos(n + 2)x)

=(2 sin(n + 1)x sin(n + 2)x + 2 cos(n + 1)x cos(n + 2)x)

Adding (1) and (2) and using identity formulae, we get

2 cos A cos B + 2 sin A sin B = cos (A+B) + cos (A-B) + cos (A-B) – cos (A+B)

2 cos A cos B + 2 sin A sin B = 2 cos (A-B)

Hence, using this

=(2 cos((n + 1)x – (n + 2)x))

= cos((n + 1)x – (n + 2)x)

Using the identity,

cos A – cos B = 2 sinsin

Substituting the values,

=

= 2 sinsin

= 2 sinsin (-x)

= 2 sinsin (-x)

= 2 ( sin) sin (-x)

= 2(- sin x)

=

Rationalizing the denominator, by multiplying and dividing by

=

=

=

=sin x

Hence, LHS = RHS

### Question 12: sin2 6x â€“ sin2 4x = sin 2x sin 10x

Solution:

Taking LHS in consideration, we get

= sin2 6x â€“ sin2 4x

= sin 6x sin 6x â€“ sin 4x sin 4x

As, here there is multiplication of sin sin, we will use Defactorisation Formulae,

2 sin A sin B = cos (A-B) – cos (A+B)

Multiply and divide LHS by 2, we get

=(sin 6x sin 6x â€“ sin 4x sin 4x)

=(2 sin 6x sin 6x â€“ 2 sin 4x sin 4x)

Using the identity, we can simplify

=[(cos(6x-6x) – cos(6x+6x)) â€“ (cos(4x-4x) – cos(4x+4x))]

=[(cos(0) – cos(12x)) â€“ (cos(0) – cos(8x))]

=[1 – cos(12x) â€“ 1 + cos(8x)] (As, cos 0 = 1)

=[cos(8x) – cos (12x)]

Now, using the identity

cos A – cos B = 2 sinsin

Substituting the values, we have

=

= sinsin

= sin (10 x) sin (2x)

Hence, LHS = RHS

### Question 13: cos2 2x â€“ cos2 6x = sin 4x sin 8x

Solution:

Taking LHS in consideration, we get

= cos2 2x â€“ cos2 6x

= cos 2x cos 2x â€“ cos 6x cos 6x

As, here there is multiplication of cos cos, we will use Defactorisation Formulae,

2 cos A cos B = cos (A+B) + cos (A-B)

Multiply and divide LHS by 2, we get

=(cos 2x cos 2x â€“ cos 6x cos 6x)

=(2 cos 2x cos 2x â€“ 2 cos 6x cos 6x)

Using the identity, we can simplify

=[(cos(2x+2x) + cos(2x-2x)) â€“ (cos(6x+6x) + cos(6x-6x))]

=[(cos(2x+2x) + cos(0)) â€“ (cos(6x+6x) + cos(0))]

=[(cos(4x) + 1 â€“ cos(12x) – 1)] (As, cos 0 = 1)

=[cos(4x) â€“ cos(12x)]

Now, using the identity

cos A – cos B = 2 sinsin

Substituting the values, we have

=

= sinsin

= sin (8x) sin (4x)

Hence, LHS = RHS

### Question 14: sin 2x + 2 sin 4x + sin 6x = 4 cos2 x sin 4x

Solution:

Taking LHS in consideration, we get

sin 2x + 2 sin 4x + sin 6x

After rearranging, we have

= (sin 2x + sin 6x) + 2 sin 4x

Using the identity, we can simplify

sin A+ sin B = 2 sincos

= 2 sincos+ 2 sin 4x

= 2 sincos+ 2 sin 4x

= 2 sin (4x) cos (2x) + 2 sin 4x

Taking (2 sin 4x), we have

= 2 sin (4x) (cos (2x) + 1)

= 2 sin (4x) (2 cos2 x – 1 + 1) (As, cos 2Î¸ = 2cos2 Î¸ – 1)

= 2 sin (4x) (2 cos2 x)

= 4 sin (4x) cos2 x

Hence, LHS = RHS
