Q. 42 E4.7( 3 Votes )

Find the value of

sec A. tan A+tan2A – cosec A, if tan A =2

Answer :

Given: tan A = 2 tan2A = 4

We know that, sec2 A = 1+ tan2A


sec2 A = 1 + 4


sec2 A = 5


sec A =5



Now, we know that tan A



2 =√5 sin A




Now, putting all the values in the given equation, we get


sec A. tan A+tan2A – cosec A
