**1. Evaluate:**

**i. **

=

= (∵ sin(90° – A) = cos A)

= 1

**ii.
**=

=

= (∵ tan(90° – A) = cot A)

= 1

**iii. cos 48° – sin 42°**

cos 48° – sin 42° = cos 48° – sin(90° – 48°)

= cos 48° – cos 48° (∵ sin(90° – A) = cos A)

= 0

**iv. cosec 31° – sec 59°**

cosec 31° – sec 59° = cosec(90° – 59°) – sec 59°

= sec 59° – sec 59° (∵ cosec(90° – A) = sec A)

= 0

**2. Show that**

**i. tan 48° tan 23° tan 42° tan 67° = 1**

LHS = tan 48° tan 23° tan 42° tan 67°

= tan(90° – 42°) tan (90° – 67°) tan 42° tan 67°

= cot(42°) cot(67°) tan 42° tan 67° (∵ tan(90° – A) = cot A)

= tan42°tan67° (∵ = cot A)

= 1

= RHS

**ii. cos 38° cos 52° – sin 38° sin 52° = 0**

LHS = cos 38° cos 52° – sin 38° sin 52°

= cos 38° cos 52° – sin(90° – 52°) sin(90° – 38°)

= cos 38° cos 52° – cos 52° cos 38° (∵ sin(90° – A) = cos A)

= 0

= RHS

**3. If tan 2A = cot (A – 18°), where 2A is an acute angle, find the value of A.**

tan 2A = cot(A – 18°)

cot(90° – 2A) = cot(A – 18°)

⇒ 90° – 2A = A – 18°

3A = 90° + 18°

3A = 108°

A = 36°

**4. If tan A = cot B, prove that A + B = 90°.**

Given, tan A = cot B

⇒ cot(90° – A) = cot B (∵ cot(90° – θ) = tan θ)

⇒ 90° – A = B

∴ A + B = 90°

**5. If sec 4A = cosec (A – 20°), where 4A is an acute angle, find the value of A.**

Given, sec 4A = cosec (A – 20°)

⇒ cosec(90° – 4A) = cosec (A – 20°) (∵ cosec(90° – θ) = sec θ)

⇒ 90° – 4A = A – 20°

5A = 90° + 20° = 110°

∴ A = 22°

**6. If A, B and C are interior angles of a triangle ABC, then show that**

=

Given, A, B and C are the interior angles of triangle

∴ A + B + C = 180°

⇒ B + C = 180° – A …(i)

LHS =

= (From equation (i))

=

= (∵ sin(90° – θ) = cos θ)

= R.H.S

**7. Express sin 67° + cos 75° in terms of trigonometric ratios of angles between 0° and 45°.**

sin 67° + cos 75°

= sin(90° – 23°) + cos(90° – 15°)

= cos 23° + sin 15° (∵ sin(90° – θ) = cos θ and cos(90° – θ) = sin θ)
