Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well, you can start by testing a couple of values, to disprove it immediately try A=30 and B=59 Tan30 + tan59 = tan89 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I for one, do not recall the tangent identity to be quite as simple as tan(A) + tan(B) = tan(A + B)...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's not @terenzreignz, but the question states for A+B< 90 which makes it not able to be an identity. But it's easy to disprove.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Why not tan(45) + tan(30) = tan(75) :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0basically tana+tanb= (sinacosb+sinbcosa)/cosacosb= sin(a+b)/cosacosb

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1At least we have exact values for these stuff :3 \[\Large \tan(45^o) = 1\\\Large \tan(30^o)=\frac1{\sqrt{3}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1My reasoning for picking a A+B close to 90, was due to tan90 being undefined, so it's highly unlikely two smaller angles will give anything close to the tangent of an angle near 90

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0=(sinacosb+cosasinb)/cosacosb=/= sinasinb/cosacosb

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now i need to somehow prove sinacosb+sinbcosa=/=sinasinb...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@katherine.ok based on her other questions, I don't think she's at the level of trigonometry where they're using proofs. I think it's more an analytical question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0by using the tangent graph, adding a random point where x is (0,90),you will not get tan a+ tan b because it is not linear graph.
