Q. 4

If f(x) = cos2[π2]x + cos [-π2] x, where [x] denotes the greatest integer less than or equal to x, then write the value of f(π).

Answer :

π2 ≈ 9.8596


So, we have [π2 ]=9 and [-π2 ]=-10


f(x)=cos 18x+ cos (-10)x


=cos 18x + cos 10x



=2 cos 14x cos4x


f(π)=2 cos 14π cos


=2×1×1


Therefore, f(π)= 2
