let A +B = pi/4 


tan(A+B)=1


or, tanA +tanB = 1-tanAtanB


or, (1+tanA)(1+tanB)=2




 use this result to obtain A+4A = pi/4


 


A= pi/20

(1+tanA)(1+tan4A)=2,


1+tanA+tan4A+tanAtan4A=2,


tanA+tan4A+tanAtan4A=1,


tanA+tan4A=1-tanAtan4A,


(tanA+tan4A)/(1-tanAtan4A)=1,


tan(A+4A)=tan45,


tan5A=tan45,


thus 5A=45,


A=9.


then (a) is the ans.
