The value of n∈Z for which the function f(x)=sinnxsin(x/n) has 4π as its period, is

  1. 2
  2. 3
  3. 4
  4. 5
Correct Answer: Option(a)
Solution: Forn=2,f(x)=sin2xsin(x2)=4sin(x2)cos(x2)cosxsin(x2)                   =4cos(x2)cosx The period of cosx=2π and that of cosx2 is 4π, so period of sin2xsin(x2) is 4π. For n=3,sin{3(x+4π)}sin{(x+4π)3}=sin3xsin(x3+4π3)≠sin3xsin(x3) So, 4π is not the period for n=3. Similarly, we can see that 4π is not the period of sinnxsin(xn) for n=4 and 5 also.
