Question 9: sin (A + B) = 1 and sin (A – B) =$$frac{1}{2}$;$0° < (A + B) ≤ 90°); (∠A > ∠B). Find ∠A and ∠B.

## NCERT Solution to Class 10 Maths

### Explanatory Answer | Trigonometry Important Question 9

sin (A + B) = 1
sin (A – B) =$$frac{1}{2}$ 0° < A + B ≤ 90° ∠A > ∠B #### Compute A and B using sin$A + B) and sin (A - B)

sin (A + B) = 1
We know sin 90° = 1
∴ sin (A + B) = sin 90°
A + B = 90° ......(1)

sin (A – B) = $$frac{1}{2}$ We know sin 30° =$\frac{1}{2}$ ∴ sin$A – B) = sin 30°
A – B = 30° ...... (2)

#### Solve Equations (1) and (2) to Find A and B

Add equations (1) and (2): (A + B) + (A – B) = 90° + 30°
2A = 120° or A = 60°

Substitute A = 60° in equation 1
60° + B = 90°
Or B = 90° – 60° ⇒ B = 30°
So, ∠A = 60° and ∠B = 30°
