IIT-JEE 1988

Subjective
A sign -post in the form of an isosceles triangle $$ABC$$ is mounted on a pole of height $$h$$ fixed to the ground. The base $$BC$$ of the triangle is parallel to the ground. A man standing on the ground at a distance $$d$$ from the sign-post finds that the top vertex $$A$$ of the triangle subtends an angle $$\beta $$ and either of the other two vertices subtends the same angle $$\alpha $$ at his feet. Find the area of the triangle.

Answer

$$\left( {d\tan \beta - h} \right)\sqrt {{h^2}{{\cot }^2}\alpha - {d^2}} $$

IIT-JEE 1985

Subjective
In a triangle $$ABC$$, the median to the side $$BC$$ is of length $$${1 \over {\sqrt {11 - 6\sqrt 3 } }}$$$ and it divides the angle $$A$$ into angles $${30^ \circ }$$ and $${45^ \circ }$$. Find the length of the side $$BC$$.

Answer

$$2$$ units.

IIT-JEE 1985

Subjective
A ladder rests against a wall at an angle $$\alpha $$ to the horizintal. Its foot is pulled away from the wall through a distance $$a$$, so that it slides $$a$$ distance $$b$$ down the wall making an angle $$\beta $$ with the horizontal. Show that $$a = b\tan {1 \over 2}\left( {\alpha + \beta } \right)$$

Answer

Solve it.
