Q. 26 B4.1( 19 Votes )

# In a right triangle ABC, right angled at B, if tan A = 1, then verify that 2 sin A cos A = 1.

tan A = 1

As we know Now construct a right angle triangle right angled at B such that

BAC = θ

Hence perpendicular = BC = 1 and base = AB = 1 By Pythagoras theorem,

AC2 = AB2 + BC2

AC2 = (1)2 + (1)2

AC2 = 2

AC = As,  Hence,

2 sin A cos A= 2 sin A cos A= 2 sin A cos A=1

= R.H.S

Hence proved.
