Example 3 If cot a
= 3 and p < a
< 3p /2 . Find 4 sin a
+ 2 cos a
Solution :
p < a
< 3p /2 means a lies in IIIrd Quadrant.
\ sin a
and cos a are negatives.
Example 4
if tan
Solution : since p
< A < 3/2 p, A lies in the IIIrd
Quardrant.
\ Both csc A and
sec A are negative.
Example 5
5 tan Find the
value of cosec A  sin B.
Solution :
Example 6
where A and B are angles in the second Quadrant.
Prove that 4 cos A+ 3 cos B = 5.
Solution : 1) We have
is II Quadrant.
From cos^{2}A = 1 sin^{2}A we
get
Example 7 If sin
, determine the values of tan
, sec , and csc
.
Solution : We know that m^{2}+
n^{2})^{2} (m^{2} n^{2})^{2}
= 4 m^{ 2 }n^{2}
Given that
observing the adjoining fig it follows that
