    I had come up with : tan (A+B) = -1

    so (A+B) = ?

    A+B = -45 + 180 * k

    is it, 7pi /4

    \[\tan(A+B) = \frac{\tan(A) + \tan(B)}{1 - \tan(A) \cdot \tan(B)}\]

    -45 = pi/4 180 = pi so -pi/4 + pi = 3pi/4 -pi/4 + 2pi = 7pi/4 and so on..

    If you calculated it right then: \[A+B= \tan^{-1}(-1)\]

    so 7pi/4 is one possibility

    \[A+B = \tan^{-1}\frac{ -1 }{ 2 }+\tan^{-1} \frac{ -1 }{ 3 }\]

    so it can be : 3 pi / 4, 7pi/4 , . ... It can not be 5 pi / 4 because it will be positive for tan.

    But the book says that the answer is : d) none Options were : i) pi/4 ii) 3 pi/4 iii) 5 pi/4 iv) none.

    So it will be 3 pi/4 ? or none?

    like A+B should be between 0 to 90 or something like this ?

    else 3pi/4 is correct

    \[\pi - \frac{\pi}{4} = \frac{3 \pi}{4}\]

    There was some mistake in the formula that I had written above.. That day I was looking for the same and now I have found it : \[\tan^{-1}(-x) = \pi - \tan^{-1}(x)\]
