So, down to the first question we have for Add Math Trigonometric R-Formula. The question starts off asking for the length of Corridor A in sin and cos instead. If you break down the 2 triangle you will see the lengths in terms of sin and cos. Add it all up and you have the length in sin and cos. That is quite a straight forward Additional Mathematics trick. Next part, using R-formula helps you to solve part ii). Then solve the trigonometric equation, but be careful of the range as now you have a trap, there is a negative value that falls between the range. This is also another Additional Mathematics methodology. Of course, all of the other points needs to be rejected as it is past a right angle. Of course, the last part is to find the maximum point. That occurs when cos x=1. It is all good once you see how the graph from desmos.com works with the question.
