    tan(a+b)=(tan a +tan b)/(1-tan a tan b)....put a =60 and b =45 and solve

    so \[\tan105= (1+\sqrt{3})/(1-\sqrt{3}) \]

    no it is rationalization u multiply num and den both by a coomon value so that the expression remains unaffected

    so it is always the numerator?

    no depends on what simplifies the root if 1-root 3 was there in numerator and 1+root 3 in den the you would multiply num and den by 1-root 3...since (1+root 3)(1-root3)=1-3...using a^2-b^2

    multiply with a value that would make denominator a rational one
