d arithmetic mean of d roots of d equatio n

4Cos3x -4Cos2x -Cos[315pie+x]=1

• kamalendu ghosh ·

it reduces to 4 cos3x -4cos2x+cosx-1=o

take cos x-1 common......

• kamalendu ghosh ·

then (4cos2x+1)(cosx-1)=o....

so only cos x-1=0

so cos x=1

• virang1 Jhaveri ·

4Cos3x - 4 Cos2x + Cosx = 1
let Cos x = a
4a3 - 4a2 + a = 1
4a3 - 4a2 + a - 1 = 0
(a - 1)(4a2 + 1) = 0
Therefore possible
a = 1
a = i/2
A.M = 1 + i /3
AM = 1/3 + i/3

• eureka123 ·

when u had till here......4Cos3x - 4 Cos2x + Cosx = 1
then use the property.....
summation of roots=-(-4/4)=1
=> AM=1/3

• kamalendu ghosh ·

oops!! missed that

• virang1 Jhaveri ·

Can you pls tell me the property i donot know that

• eureka123 ·

i also missed to put 3 in place of 2...
corrected that...

• eureka123 ·

for virang • virang1 Jhaveri ·

But eureka when i actually solved it i got a i = √-1 in between how do i solve that

• eureka123 ·

u wrote .....

a = i/2
=> cosx=i/2

writing this doesnt mean anything

i hope u unerstand.......

• virang1 Jhaveri ·

ok so you take the other roots as nil and take only 1

• brinda laxmi ·

• eureka123 ·

the question is indeed wrong...........

right question is
the arithmetic mean of d roots of the equation

4Cos3x -4Cos2x -Cos(π+x)=1 in interval (0,315)

solution:
proceeding as nishant sir did,we get cosx=1
=>cosx=2n.π
Since 100π<315<101π
=>cosx=2π,4π,...........100π

=>AM=2(π+2π+........50π)/50
=>AM=2*50*51*π/2*50
=>AM=51π

4Cos3x -4Cos2x -Cos[315pie+x]=1
=
4Cos3x -4Cos2x + Cosx-1=0

( 4 cos2x +1 ) (cos x - 1) =0

the first one is not possible...

so x=(2n)π

among the options given to your brinda... you should realise that no other option will hold.. I think you must be solving a multiple choice question..

• 2nπ=x is the answer as range of x is [0,315] so convert 315 into radian 315×π/π≈100π so x=0,2π,4π......100π and atithimetic mean comes out to be (100π+0)/2=50π

• jb6098 swathi ·

idont understand wat ur saying bhaiyya d ans is given as 51∩ i got it can ne 1 say how it is plz

• Lokesh Verma ·

do you mean that you got the answer 51 pi?

I think that is the answer

can you tell the other options

and also can you tell the source of this question?
