If in a triangle


If in a triangle $\mathrm{ABC}, \mathrm{AB}=5$ units, $\angle \mathrm{B}=\cos ^{-1}\left(\frac{3}{5}\right)$ and radius of circumcircle of $\triangle \mathrm{ABC}$ is 5 units, then the area (in sq. units) of $\triangle \mathrm{ABC}$ is :

  1. $10+6 \sqrt{2}$

  2. $8+2 \sqrt{2}$

  3. $6+8 \sqrt{3}$

  4. $4+2 \sqrt{3}$

Correct Option: , 3


As, $\operatorname{cosB}=\frac{3}{5} \Rightarrow \mathrm{B}=53^{\circ}$

As, $R=5 \Rightarrow \frac{c}{\sin c}=2 R$

$\Rightarrow \frac{5}{10}=\sin \mathrm{c} \Rightarrow \mathrm{C}=30^{\circ}$

Now, $\frac{\mathrm{b}}{\sin \mathrm{B}}=2 \mathrm{R} \Rightarrow \mathrm{b}=2(5)\left(\frac{4}{5}\right)=8$

Now, by cosine formula

$\cos \mathrm{B}=\frac{\mathrm{a}^{2}+\mathrm{c}^{2}-\mathrm{b}^{2}}{2 \mathrm{ac}}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{3}{5}=\frac{a^{2}+25-64}{2(5) a}$

$\Rightarrow a^{2}-6 a-3 g=0$

$\therefore \mathrm{a}=\frac{6 \pm \sqrt{192}}{2}=\frac{6 \pm 8 \sqrt{3}}{2}$

$\Rightarrow 3+4 \sqrt{3}($ Reject $a=3-4 \sqrt{3})$

Now, $\Delta=\frac{\mathrm{abc}}{4 \mathrm{R}}=\frac{(3+4 \sqrt{3})(8)(5)}{4(5)}=2(3+4 \sqrt{3})$

$\Rightarrow \Delta=(6+8 \sqrt{3})$

$\Rightarrow$ Option (3) is correct.
