Question A circus artist is climbing from the ground along a rope stretched from the top of a vertical pole and tied at the ground. The height of the pole is 12 m and the angle made by the rope with ground level is 30°. Give answer to the following questionsQuestion 1 The distance covered by the artist in climbing the top of the pole is: (a) 24 m (b) 36 m (c) 28 m (d) 22 m We need to find AC
In Δ ABC
sin C = 𝐴𝐵/𝐴𝐶
sin 30° = 12/𝐴𝐶
1/2 = 12/𝐴𝐶
AC = 2 × 12
AC = 24 m
So, the correct answer is (A)
Question 2 The length of BC is: (a) 24√3 m (b) 12√3 m (c) 2√3 m (d) √3 m In Δ ABC
tan C = 𝐴𝐵/𝐵𝐶
tan 30° = 12/𝐵𝐶
1/√3 = 12/𝐵𝐶
BC = 12 × √3
BC = 12√3 m
So, the correct answer is (B)
Question 3 If sin〖(𝐴+𝐵)〗=√3/2 , then the value of (A + B) is: (a) 30° (b) 90° (c) 60° (d) 45° Given,
sin〖(𝐴+𝐵)〗=√3/2
sin〖(𝐴+𝐵)〗=sin〖60° 〗
Comparing angles
A + B = 60°
So, the correct answer is (C)
Question 4 In Δ ABC, given that ∠ A = 60° and ∠ C = 30°, then value of sin A cos C + cos C sin A is (a) 0 (b) ∞ (c) 10 (d) 3/2Now,
sin A cos C + cos C sin A
= 2 × sin A cos C
= 2 × sin 60° cos 30°
= 2 × √3/2 × √3/2
= 2 × 3/4
= 𝟑/𝟐
So, the correct answer is (B)
Question 5 Which mathematical concept is used in this problem? (a) Trigonometry (b) Triangle (c) Circle (d) MensurationIn this problem, Trigonometry is used
So, the correct answer is (A)
