if sinA , CosA and tanA are In G.P then Cos^{3 }A+ cos^{2} A is equal to ?

Tutors, please sign in to answer this question.

If sinA, cosA and tanA are consecutive terms of a geometric progression, then:

cos^{2}A = (sinA)(tanA) = sin^{2}A/cosA

so cos^{3}A = sin^{2}A = 1 - cos^{2}A

therefore cos^{2}A + cos^{3}A = 1
