Q. 564.1( 12 Votes )

If cos θ +sin θ=1, prove that cos θ – sin θ = ± 1

Answer :

Using the formula,

(a+b)2 + (a – b)2 = 2(a2+b2)


(cos θ +sin θ)2 + (cos θ – sin θ)2 = 2(cos2θ + sin2 θ)


1 + (cos θ – sin θ)2 = 2(1)


(cos θ – sin θ)2 = 2 –1


(cos θ – sin θ)2 = 1


(cos θ – sin θ) =√1


(cos θ – sin θ) = ±1
