Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Given \[\sin^{1}\frac{2a}{1+a^2}+\sin^{1}\frac{2b}{1+b^2}=2\tan^{1}x\] Prove that \[x=\frac{a+b}{1ab}\] What I've done: Let \[a=\tan \alpha\]\[b=\tan \beta\] \[\implies \sin^{1}(\sin(2 \alpha))+\sin^{1}(\sin(2 \beta))=2 \alpha+2 \beta=2(\alpha+\beta)=2\tan^{1}x\]\[\alpha+\beta=\tan^{1}x\]\[x=\tan(\alpha+\beta)=\frac{\tan \alpha+\tan \beta}{1\tan \alpha .\tan \beta}=\frac{a+b}{1ab}\] Is this ok?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1here is my reasoning: I have applied the sin() operator to both sides of your equation, namely: \[\Large \begin{gathered} \sin \left( {{{\sin }^{  1}}\frac{{2a}}{{1 + {a^2}}} + {{\sin }^{  1}}\frac{{2b}}{{1 + {b^2}}}} \right) = \hfill \\ \hfill \\ = \sin \left( {2{{\tan }^{  1}}x} \right) \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \] so I got: \[\Large \begin{gathered} \frac{{2a}}{{1 + {a^2}}}\frac{{1  {b^2}}}{{1 + {b^2}}} + \frac{{1  {a^2}}}{{1 + {a^2}}}\frac{{2b}}{{1 + {b^2}}} = \frac{{2x}}{{1 + {x^2}}} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ \frac{{2\left( {a  b} \right)\left( {1  ab} \right)}}{{\left( {1 + {a^2}} \right)\left( {1 + {b^2}} \right)}} = \frac{{2x}}{{1 + {x^2}}} \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \] since: \[\Large \begin{gathered} \cos \left( {\arcsin \left( {\frac{{2b}}{{1 + {b^2}}}} \right)} \right) = \frac{{1  {b^2}}}{{1 + {b^2}}} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ \cos \left( {\arcsin \left( {\frac{{2a}}{{1 + {a^2}}}} \right)} \right) = \frac{{1  {a^2}}}{{1 + {a^2}}} \hfill \\ \hfill \\ \sin \left( {2\arctan x} \right) = \frac{{2x}}{{1 + {x^2}}} \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \] now,using your value for the quantity x, I can write: \[\Large \frac{{2x}}{{1 + {x^2}}} = \frac{{2\left( {a  b} \right)\left( {1  ab} \right)}}{{\left( {1 + {a^2}} \right)\left( {1 + {b^2}} \right)}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But the problem I think in my solution is LET \[a=\tan \alpha\] and \[b=\tan \beta\] a and b are most likely constants and not variables, but can I still let them equal to something?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Idk, there is nothing given just If \[\sin^{1}\frac{2a}{1+a^2}+\sin^{1}\frac{2b}{1+b^2}=2\tan^{1}x\] prove that \[x=\frac{a+b}{1ab}\] That's all there is given

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think that your formulas, namely \[\begin{gathered} a = \tan \alpha \hfill \\ b = \tan \beta \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \] can be accepted

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I guess since \[y=\tan^{1}x\] is defined \[\forall x \in \mathbb{R}\] so whatever the constants a and b(it's not given but they must be real) \[\tan^{1}a \tan^{1}b\] would be defined
