Q1.

From the given relation, we can write, 3 cos x + sin x = 3 cos y - sin y

put r cos ƒ¿=3 and r sin ƒ¿ = 1 , then we get , r = ã 10, tanƒ¿= 1/3

so r cos ( x - ƒ¿) = r cos (x+ƒ¿)

x = - y or x = }(y+ƒ¿)

clearly x = - y satisfies the equation

therefore, x = - y

so 3x = -3y

sin 3x = sin (-3y) = - sin 3y

sin 3x / sin 3y = -1

Q2)Because sina, cosa, tana - g.p.

cos^2(a)=sina*tana=sin^2(a)/cosa

cos^2(a)=(1-cos^2(a))/cosa

cos^3(a)=1-cos^2(a)
