**Question 8.**

**Solution:**

**Question 9.****Solution:**

Given function is : **tanC+A2=cotB2**

Sum of all the angles of a triangle = 180 degree

So, A + B + C = 180^{o}

Or A + C = 180^{o} – B

And, (A + C)/2 = (180^{o} – B)/2 = 90^{o} – B/2

Now, tan (A + C)/2 = tan(90^{o} – B/2) = cot B/2

Hence Proved.

**Question 10.****Solution:**

cos 2θ = sin 4θ …(1)

We know that,

sin( 90° – θ) = cos θ

So, equation (1) can be written as

sin (90° – 2θ) = sin 4θ

On comparing both sides

90° – 2θ = 4θ

90° = 4θ + 2θ

6θ = 90°

or θ = 15°

The value of θ is 15°

**Question 11:****Solution**: Given: sec2A = cosec(A − 42°)

The value of angle A is 44 degrees.

**Question 12:****Solution:**

sin 3 A = cos (A − 26°) (given)

or cos (90° – 3A) = cos (A – 26°)

On comparing

90° – 3A = A – 26°

A + 3A = 90° + 26°

4A = 116° = 29°

The value of A is 29°.

**Question 13:****Solution:**

tan 2A = cot (A – 12°)

or cot (90° – 2A) = cot (A – 12°)

On comparing

90° – 2A = A – 12 °

A + 2A = 90° + 12°

3A = 102°

A = 34°

The value of A is 34°

**Question 14:****Solution**: sec 4A = cosec (A – 15°)

or cosec (90° – 4A) = cosec (A – 15°)

On comparing

90° – 4A = A – 15°

A + 4A = 90° + 15°

5A = 105°

A = 21°

The value of A is 21°.

**Question 15:**

**Solution:**

= 2/3 cosec^2 58°- 2/3 cot 58° tan 32° – 5/3 tan 13° tan 37° tan 45° tan 53° tan 77°

= 2/3 cosec^2 58°- 2/3 cot 58° tan (90-58)° – 5/3 tan 45° (tan 13° tan 77°) (tan 37° tan 53°)

= 2/3 cosec^2 58°- 2/3 cot 58° cot 58° – 5/3 × 1 x (tan 13° tan (90-13)°) × (tan 37° tan (90-37)°)

= 2/3 cosec^2 58°- 2/3 cot^2 58° – 5/3 × (tan 13° cot 13°) (tan 37° cot 37°)

= 2/3 [cosec^2 58°- cot^2 58°] – 5/3

= (2/3) – (5/3)

= -1

= R.H.S.
