If cosec A + cot A = 5, find the value of cos A.

Answer :

cosec A + cot A = 5

cotA = 5 cosecA


Squaring both the sides, we get


cot2 A =(5 – cosecA)2


cot2 A = 25 + cosec2A – 10cosec A


cosec2 A – 1 = 25 + cosec2A – 10cosec A [ 1+ cot2 A = cosec2 A]


–1 – 25 = –10cosecA


– 26 = –10cosec A





Now, cosec A + cot A = 5
