# More P2 triggles watch

1. hey, I'm stuck on these questions, can anyone help?

firstly:
the acute angles A and B are such that tan A = 4/3 and tan B = 7
prove that A + B = 3pi / 4

I've drawn out triangles and labelled the sides, but I can't think of what else to do...

Secondly:
Prove that
2(sin^2(P)*sin^2(Q)) + 2(cos^2(P)*cos^2(Q)) = 1 + cos2P cos2Q

any suggestions?
cheers

starting with rhs..
1+(cos^2P-sin^2P)(cos^2Q-sin^2Q))=1+cos^2Pcos^2Q+sin^2Psi n^2Q-sin^2Pcos^2Q-sin^2Qcos^2P

=1+cos^2Pcos^2Q+sin^2Psin^2Q+cos ^2Pcos^2Q-cos^2Q+sin^2Qsin^2Q-sin^2Q

=2(cos^2Pcos^2Q+sin^2Psin^2Q)+1-(cos^2Q+sin^2Q)
=2(cos^2Pcos^2Q+sin^2Psin^2Q)+1-1
=2(cos^2Pcos^2Q+sin^2Psin^2Q)

Ah, cheers.. I didn't know you could start from the RHS, is it acceptable?

And its fine to start with RHS because the expression is tautologous -it is identical for all x

tautologous

hey heres a question for ya.

when youve got a fraction in a fraction, how do you sort it out?

i mean things like 1-(1/x) on the bottom of the fraction... you can times the x up, but where else do you have to times it? the top too?

first make the 1-(1/x) a single fraction:
(x-1)/x
then multiply the 'x' to the numerator

What i do is times every single term by the fraction bit, including the top ones...

Eg 1/(3x + 1/sinx) ... times everything by sinx to get sinx/(3x.sinx + 1).

tanA+tanB=tan(A+B)(1-tanAtanB)
4/3+7=tan(A+B)(1-4/3.7)
tan(A+B)=-1
A+B=arctan(-1)
A+B=3pi/4.
