##### Feedback & Suggestions

### Important Questions on 11th Maths Chapter 3

### Find the radian measures corresponding to 25°.

We know that 180° = π radians

Therefore, 25° = π/180 × 25 radians

= 5π/36 radians

Hence, 25° = 5π/36 radians.

### A wheel makes 360 revolutions in one minute. Through how many radians does it turn in one second?

Number of revolutions in one minute (60 seconds) = 360

Therefore, number of revolutions in 1 seconds = 360/60 = 6

We know that the angle formed in one revolutions = 360° = 2π radians

Therefore, the angle formed in 6 revolutions = 6 × 2π = 12π radians

Hence, it will turn 12π radians in one second.

### Find the degree measure of the angle subtended at the centre of a circle of radius 100 cm by an arc of length 22 cm (Use π = 22/7).

Here, radius r=100 cm, length of arc l=22 cm

Hence, using the relation θ =l/r we have

θ = 22/100 radians

= 11/50 radians

We know that π radians =180°

Therefore, 11/50 radians

= 180/π × 11/50 degree

= (180 × 7)/22 × 11/50 degree

= 63/5 degree

= 12 3/5 degree

= 12° + 3/5 × 60 minutes [∵ 1° = 60′]

= 12° + 36 minutes

= 12° + 36’= 12°36′

Hence, the angle formed by are at the centre is 12°36′.

### Prove that: sin²π/6 + cos²π/3 – tan²π/4 = -1/2

LHS = sin²π/6 + cos²π/3 – tan²π/4

= (1/2)² + (1/2)² – (1)²

= 1/4 + 1/4 – 1

= 1/2 – 1

= – 1/2

= RHS

### Prove that: sin(n+1)x sin(n + 2)x + cos(n+1)x cos(n+2)x = cosx

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

= cos[(n+2)x-(n+1)x] [∵cosA cosB + sinA sinB = cos(A-B)]

= cos[nx + 2x – nx – x]

= cosx

= RHS

### Prove that: cos4x = 1 – 8 sin²x cos²x

LHS = cos4x = cos2(2x)

= 1 – 2sin²(2x)

= 1-2(sin2x)² [∵cos2A = 1 – 2sin²A ]

= 1 – 2(2sinx cos x)² [∵sin2A = 2 sinA cosA ]

= 1 – 2(4sin²x cos²x ) = 1 – 8sin²x cos²x

= RHS

### Prove that: cos6x = 32 cos⁶x – 48 cos⁴x + 18 cos²x – 1

LHS = cos6x

= cos2(3x)

= 2cos²(2x) – 1 [∵ cos2A = 2 cos²A – 1]

= 2(4 cos³x – 3 cosx )² – 1 [∵ cos3A = 4 cos³A – 3 cos A]

= 2(16 cos⁶x + 9 cos²x – 24 cos⁴x ) -1

= 32 cos⁶x – 48 cos⁴x + 18 cos²x – 1 = RHS
