Options :
1)A.P.
2)G.P.
3)H.P.
4)A.G.P.
5)No relation Is this question right becuase you need some restriction on value of A,B and C????


The condition itself restricts the value of A, B and C

5)No relation let i take A=B=C =0 then the condition is met and then we have tanA = tanB=tanC = 0 ...which can be AP,GP or whatever...
any other takers for this question..
@baburao..do u have the sol for the same


Regarding that question from trigonometry, by expanding the terms I've come across 3 cases all of which leads to A=B=C=0(considering the 1st qudrant values only).
It'll be much appreciated if baburao can explain the method and solution to the problem

Ans is a)0 

Originally Posted by sumit2goody Q: Log[(tan 2)(tan 4)(tan 6)....(tan 86)(tan 88)] = ?
a) 0 b) 2 c) 1 d) infinity it's a) 0
tanAtanB = 1(tanA+tan B)/tan(A+B)
Putting A = 2 and B= 88
tan2tan88 = 1(tan2+tan88)/tan 90 = 10 =1(tan 90 = infinity)
we get 1 for all the pairs and we are left with tan 45 with no pair.
Now tan 45 = 1
so it comes down to log(1.1.1...) = log 1 = 0.

a) 0 b) 2 c) 1 d) infinity it's option a..
used the same method as of first_timer...


Oh my God! Looking at trignometery gives me heartattack! Is school level maths enogh to solve such sums? So that I cant start revising it.


Cant figure out the answer!!! And to think of it trigonometry was my favourite topic in school Is the difficulty level oo high for this question?

If trigonometry is such a big issue for u i think u should revise ur school level trigo and should clear ur basic concepts as soon as possible.
after this, u r more than half done.
if u r referring any book for ur quant prep, there is no need to go through school books; u can study from that book only. All the prep books include basic concepts plus shortcuts to save ur precious time during the exam


Answer is option 1(0)
i found this using foll method.
tanx=cot(90x)
tan2=cot(902)=cot88=1/(tan88)
hence tan2.tan88=1
similarly tan4.tan86=1
thus log(tan2.tan4....tan86.tan88)=log(1)=0

see this question uses very basic concept of trigo...
one is that tan x = cot(90x)
and you can also solve it using tan(A+B) = tan A + tanB / 1  tanAtanB
so see both are very basic concepts ..just revise them and try practicing questions you will crack your fav topic

Tan 88 = Cot 2 [Tan A = Cot (90  A)]
And Tan 2 . Cot 2 = 1
So, we form pairs like :
Tan 4 . Tan 86 = 1
Tan 6 . Tan 84 = 1
Tan 8 . Tan 82 = 1...
And Log 1 = 0


Cudnt do thuis sum. So I saw the method used by you all. Now I got it. Will practic more sums now.


thank you nipunkesari
Thank you nipunkesari. I will practice from school books and will also practice from other CAT level books. Will clear my basics first so that I can do the sums properly.


THANK YOU Sumit!!!
Thanks Sumit. Yeah that really was easy. Those formulae I learnt in class 10th. Maybe I just dint see it. Now there are hopes of trigo remaining my fav. Topic
