ISI MStat 2019 PSA Problem 12 | Domain of a function

This is a beautiful problem from ISI MStat 2019 PSA problem 12 based on finding the domain of the function. We provide sequential hints so that you can try.

Domain of a function- ISI MStat Year 2019 PSA Question 12


What is the set of numbers \(x\) in \( (0,2 \pi)\) such that \(\log \log (\sin x+\cos x)\) is well-defined?

  • \( [\frac{\pi}{8},\frac{3 \pi}{8}] \)
  • \( (0,\frac{\pi}{2}) \)
  • \( (0,\frac{ \pi}{4}] \)
  • \( (0,\pi) \cup (\frac{3 \pi}{2}, 2 \pi) \)

Pre-college Mathematics

Try with Hints


\(logx\) is defined for \( x \in (0,\infty)\).

\(sinx+cosx > 0\).
\(log(sinx+cosx) > 0 \Rightarrow sinx + cosx > 1\)
\( sin(x+\frac{\pi}{4}) > \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}}\)
For \(y\) in \( (0,2 \pi)\) , \(siny > \frac{1}{\sqrt{2}} \iff \frac{\pi}{4} < y < \frac{3\pi}{4 } \)

Hence we have \( 0< x < \frac{\pi}{2 } \) .
