**Question 3:**

In a ΔABC, tanA and tanB are the roots of pq(x^{2} + 1) = r^{2}x. Then ΔABC is

(A) a right angled triangle

(B) an acute angled triangle

(C) an obtuse angled triangle

(D) an equilateral triangle

**Solution 3:**

We have equation, pq(x^{2} + 1) = r^{2}x.

So, pqx^{2} – r^{2}x + pq = 0

tanA and tanB are the roots of the above equation

Product of roots = tanA. tanB = pq/pq = 1

tanA tanB = 1

So, tan(A+B) is undefined

=> ∠C = π / 2

So, ABC is right angled triangle.

Hence, the correct option is (A).

**Question 5:**

In a ΔABC, a,b,c are the side of the triangle opposite to the angles A,B,C respectively. Then the value of a^{3}sin(B–C) + b^{3} sin(C–A) + c^{3}sin(A–B) is equal to

(A) 0

(B) 1

(C) 3

(D) 2

**Solution 5:**

By using sine law and 3A formula, the value of

a^{3}sin(B–C) + b^{3} sin(C–A) + c^{3}sin(A–B) = 0

Hence, the correct option is (A).
