A retailer keeps Reebok shoes, which are listed at a mark up of 10% above their factory price. However on Monday he realized the shortage of demand and hence decreased the list price by 10%. On the very next day, that is, Tuesday he realized that he is making a loss so he increased yhe list price by 10% again. He continues this trend indefinitely. On which day will he suffer a loss of more than 10% per shoe for the first time?

The sum of the lengths of the hypotenuse and one of the perpendicular sides of a right angled triangle is L. When the area of this triangle is maximum, the angle between the two sides is

Please provide the approach as well

1) 45 degrees

2) 22.5 degrees

3) 60 degrees

4) None of these Skip

—

let the three sides of the triangle be P,B and H.

p^2+B^2=H^2........eq1

A/Q P+H=L

so, H=L-P

substitute H in eq1

p=(L^2-B^2)/2L

area= 1/2*B*P

for Area to be max derivative will be 0.

which gives L^2=3*(B^2)

so, B = L/sqrt(3)

p=L/3

sin X=1/2

X=30 deg

hence ANS 4 None of these
