Method of solving this CAT Question from CAT Geometry - Trigonometry : aSinx + bcosx can take a range of values. What is the possible range in this scenario?

3sinx + 4cosx ≥ -r
5($$frac{3}{5}\\$sinx + $\frac{4}{5}\\$cosx) ≥ -r $\frac{3}{5}\\$ = cosA => sinA =$\frac{4}{5}\\$ 5$sinx cosA + sinA cosx) ≥ -r
5(sin(x + A)) ≥ -r
5sin (x + A) ≥ -r
-1 ≤ sin (angle) ≤ 1
5sin (x + A) ≥ -5
rmin = 5

The question is "What is the smallest value ‘r’ can to take?"

Choice A is the correct answer.
