Short Answer Type Questions (Q. No. 8-15)
Question. 10 A ladder 15m long just reaches the top of a vertical wall. If the ladder makes an angle of 60° with the wall, then find the height of the wall.
Let AB be the 15 m long ladder making a 60o angle with a h metre high wall AC.
Question. 11 Simplify (1 + tan2 θ) (1 - sin θ) (1 + sin θ).
Question. 12 If 2sin2θ - cos2θ = 2, then find the value of θ.
Question. 14 An observer 1.5m tall is 20.5m away from a tower 22m high. Determine the angle of elevation of the top of the tower from the eye of the observer.
Let AB be the 22 m high tower and CD be the 1.5 m tall observer standing at a distance of BC = 20.5 m away from the tower.
Also, let θ be the angle of elevation of the top of the tower from the eye of the observer.
Question. 15 Show that tan4θ + tan2 θ = sec4 θ - sec2 θ.
