#### Question

if cosec A = sqrt2 find the value of (2 sin^2 A + 3 cot^2 A)/(4(tan^2 A - cos^2 A))

#### Solution

Given cosec A = sqrt2

We have to find the value of the expression  (2 sin^2 A + 3 cot^2 A)/(4(tan^2 A - cos^2 A))

We know that

cosec A =sqrt2

=> sin A = 1/(cosec A) = 1/sqrt2

cos A = sqrt(1 - sin^2 A) = sqrt(1 - (1/sqrt2)^2) = 1/sqrt2

tan A = sin A/cos A = (1/sqrt2)/(1/sqrt2) = 1

cot A = 1/tan A = 1/1 = 1

Therefore,

(2 sin^2 A + 3 cot^2 A)/(4(tan^2 A - cos^2 A)) = (2 xx (1/sqrt2)^2 + 3 xx 1^2)/(4(1^2 - (1/sqrt2)^2))

= 2

Hence, the value of the given expression is 2

Is there an error in this question or solution?
