if
cos x + cos y + cos z = 3 sin60
and
sin x + sin y + sin z = 3 cos60
then how do i prove that
x=pi/6 + 2k(pi)
y=pi/6 + 2l(pi)
and z=pi/6 + 2m(pi)
where k,l,m are integers..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i dont have perfect solution.. still i logically say that cos x +cos y + cos z = cos 30 + cos 30 + cos 30 which means x=y=z=pi/6 since sin and cos repeat after intervals of 2pi x = y = z = pi/6 + 2n(pi)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i sq both and added them,,got cosx cosy + sinx siny + cosx cosz + sinx sinz + cosz cosy + sinz siny = 3 so its cos( ) + cos ( ) + cos ( ) = 3 where space inside ( ) denotes something now each cos ( ) = 1 but how do i reach my ans ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well I recall something from \(2k\pi\) and that is demoirve's theorem from complex numbers which has a lot to do with such questions

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(2k \pi\) is just coming from that fact that general solution of \(cos(x) = cos(y)\) is given by \[x = 2n \pi \pm y\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@mukushla how do we reach the ans from here?? also we dont know if it'll be xy or yx under ( ),,same argument for other ( )

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3\[y=x2n\pi\]\[z=x2m\pi\] put them in the first one \[\cos x+\cos (x2n\pi)+\cos(x2m\pi)=3\cos 30\]\[\cos x+\cos x+\cos x=3\cos 30\]
