Also,

OP = 5 2 +12 2 =13

Now,

12 sin x + 5 cos x = 4

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

13 cos (x ) = 4

cos( x ) =

Method 2

Construct a triangle OPQ with tan =

Also,

OP = 5 +12 =13

Now,

12 sin x + 5 cos x = 4

13 sin ( x + ) = 4

sin ( x + ) =

To show that the solution set (2) is the same as the solution set (1), we need to divide the solution into odd

and even cases :

(a)

n = 2m ,

(b) n = 2m + 1,

Method 4 is unsatisfactory since solution set (4) gives a larger solution set than (1), (2) or (3).

Readers please explain. What solutions should be rejected ? How to reject ?

Explanation

Squaring equation creates roots! That is why Method 4 is not recommended.

2

In (4),

(a)

When

(i)

x 180 n + ( 1) 40.540 .

n

n = 2m,

(ii) n = 2m + 1,

(b) When

(i)

x 360 m + 40.540

x 360 m +139.460

x 180 n + ( 1) 4.700

n = 2m,

(ii) n = 2m + 1,

x 360 m 4.700

x 360 m +184.700

x 360 m + 40.540

x 360 m + 139.460

x 360 m 4.700

x 360 m + 184.700

....( 4.1)

....( 4.2)

....( 4.3)

....( 4.4)

(4.1) and (4.4) should be rejected.

For (4.1), 12 sin x + 5 cos x = 12 sin (360 m + 40.540 ) + 5 cos(360 m + 40.540 )

= 12 sin 40.540 + 5 cos 40.540

11.59951

4

x 360 m + 40.540

does not satisfy the equation 12 sin x + 5 cos x = 4, and should be rejected.
