Prove the following



Question 1. $3 \sin ^{-1} = \sin ^{-1}(3x - 4x^{3}) , \; x \in \left [ -\frac{1}{2}, \frac{1}{2} \right ]$
Solution
Let sin-1x = y, then x = sin y
We get,
RHS = $\sin ^{-1} (3x - 4x^{3 }) = \sin ^{-1} (3 \sin y - 4 \sin^{3} y )\\$
$= \\\sin ^{-1} (\sin 3 y) = 3 y = 3 \sin^{-1}x$
= LHS

Question 2. $3 \cos ^{-1} x = cos ^{-1}(4x^{3} - 3x), x \in \left [ \frac{1}{2}, 1 \right ]$
Solution
Let cos-1 x = y, then x = cos y
We get,
RHS = $\cos ^{-1} (4x^{3} - 3x) = cos^{-1}(4cos^{3} y - 3cos y)$
$= \\\cos ^{-1} (cos 3 y ) = 3 y = 3 cos^{-1} x$
= LHS
 

Question 3. Show that $tan ^{-1} \frac{2}{11} + \tan ^{-1} \frac{7}{24} = \tan ^{-1} \frac{1}{2}$
Solution
LHS = $tan ^{-1} \frac{2}{11} + \tan ^{-1} \frac{7}{24} $
$= tan ^{-1} \left ( \frac{\frac{2}{11} + \frac{7}{24}}{1 - \frac{2}{11} \times \frac{7}{24}} \right ) = \tan^{-1} \left (\frac{\frac{48 + 77}{11 \times 24}}{\frac{11 \times 24 - 14}{11 \times 24}} \right )\\$
$\\= tan ^{-1} \frac{48 + 77}{264 - 14} = \tan^{-1} \frac{125}{251} = \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{2}$ = RHS
 

Question 4. Show that $2 \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{2} + \tan^{-1}\frac{1}{7} = \tan^{-1}\frac{31}{17}$
Solution
LHS = $2 \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{2} + \tan^{-1}\frac{1}{7} $
$= \tan^{-1} \left [ \frac{2 \times \frac{1}{2}}{1 - \left ( \frac{1}{2} \right )^{2}} \right ] + \tan ^{-1} \frac{1}{7} = \tan ^{-1} \frac{1}{\left ( \frac{3}{4} \right )} + \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{7}\\$
$\\= \tan^{-1} \frac{4}{3} + \tan^{-1} \frac{1}{7} = \tan^{-1}\left ( \frac{\frac{4}{3} + \frac{1}{7}}{1 - \frac{4}{3} \times \frac{1}{7}} \right )\\$
$\\= \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{\frac{28 + 3}{3 \times 7}}{\frac{3 \times 7 -4}{3 \times 7}} \right ) = \tan^{-1} \frac{28 + 3}{21 - 4} = tan^{-1} \frac{31}{17} = RHS$

$\\ = \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{ \sec y - 1 }{\tan y } \right ) = \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{1 - \cos y }{\sin y } \right )\\$
$\\\tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{2\sin^{2}\frac{y }{2}}{2\sin\frac{y }{2}\cos\frac{y }{2}}\right ) = \tan^{-1}\left ( \tan \frac{y }{2} \right )\\$

Find the values of each of the expressions in Exercises 16 to 18.


Question 16 sin-1(sin 2π/3)
Solution
sin-1 (sin 2π/3)
Now We know that sin-1 (sin x) = x if x in [π/2, -π/2], which is the principal value branch of sin-1 x.
Now 2π/3 is not in [π/2, -π/2],So
= sin-1 [(sin π - 2π/3)]
= sin-1 [sin (π/3)]
= π/3

Question 17 tan-1 (tan 3π/4)
Solution
tan-1(tan 3π/4)
= tan-1 [tan (3π/4)]
= tan-1 [tan (π - π/4)]
= tan-1 [-tan (π/4)]
= tan-1 [ -tan (π/4)]
= -π/4

Question 18 tan [sin-1 (3/5) + cot-1 (3/2) ]
Solution
let x=sin-1 (3/5), sinx= 3/5 , cos x=(1-sin2x)1/2= 4/5
So tanx=3/4
or x=tan-1 (3/4)
Now cot-1 (3/2) = tan-1 (2/3)
So
tan [sin-1 (3/5) + cot-1 (3/2) ]
=tan [tan-1 (2/3) + tan-1 (2/3) ]
=tan [tan-1 (17/6)] =17/6

Question 19 cos-1 [cos (7π/6)] is equal to
(A) 7π/6
(B) 5π/6
(C) π/3
(D) π/6
Solution
= cos-1 [cos (2π - 5π/6)]
= cos-1 [cos (5π/6)]
= 5π/6
Hence the correct option is (B)

Question 20 sin [(π/3) - sin-1 (-1/2)] is equal to
(A) 1/2
(B) 1/3
(C) 1/4
(D) 1
Solution
sin [(π/3) - sin-1 (-1/2)]
=sin [(π/3) - sin-1 sin (-π/6)]
=sin [(π/3) +(π/6) ]
=sin (π/2)
=1
Hence the correct option is (D)

Question 21 tan-1 √3 - cot-1 (-√3) is equal to
(A) π
(B) -π/2
(C) 0
(D) 2√3
Solution
tan-1 √3 =x
or tan (x) =√3
or x= π/3( Principle Range)

cot-1 (-√3) =y
or cot y= -√3
or y = 5π/6 ( Principle Range)

tan-1 √3 - cot-1 (-√3)
= π/3 - 5π/6
=-π/2
Hence the correct option is (B)
