# If 3 Cos Theta = 1, Find the Value of (6 Sin^2 Theta + Tan^2 Theta)/(4 Cos Theta) - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

ConceptTrigonometric Ratios of Complementary Angles

#### Question

if 3 cos theta = 1, find the value of (6 sin^2 theta + tan^2 theta)/(4 cos theta)

#### Solution

Given 3 cos theta = 1

We have to find the value of the expression (6 sin^2 theta + tan^2 theta)/(4 cos theta)

We have

3 cos theta = 1

=> cos theta = 1/3

sin theta = sqrt(1 - cos^2 theta) =  sqrt(1- (1/3)^3) = sqrt8/3

tan theta = sin theta/cos theta = (sqrt8/3)/(1/3) = sqrt8

Therefore,

(6 sin^2 theta + tan^2 theta)/(4 cos theta) = (6 xx (sqrt8/3)^2 + (sqrt8)^2)/(4 xx 1/3)

= 10

Hence, the value of the expression is 10.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
