The value of 2 sin can be a +, where a is a positive number and a1.

Answer :


Given: ‘a’ is a positive number and a≠1


(Arithmetic Mean (AM) of a list of non- negative real numbers is greater than or equal to the Geometric mean (GM) of the same list)

If a and b be such numbers, then

and GM = √ab

By assuming that statement is be true.

Similarly, AM and GM of a and 1/a are (a+1/a)/2 and √(a.1/a) respectively.

By property, (a+1/a)/2 > √(a.1/a)

2 sin θ > 2 (By our assumption)

sin θ > 1

But -1 ≤ sin θ ≤ 1

Our assumption is wrong and that 2 sin θ cannot be equal to
