Dear Piyush,

Cos(A+B)=4/5= 0.8
A+B =36.87 

Sin(A-B)=5/13 = 0.3846
A-B = 22.62
by adding
2A =36.87 + 22.62 = 59.49
tan 2A = tan 59.49= 1.6969

sin(a+b) = 3/5 i.e. a+b = 37 & cos(a-b) = 12/13 i.e. a-b = 22.5 These are standard values of some trigonometric functions which are used as shortcuts So , from above equations we get a=30(approx) So tan2a = tan60 = v3 If you are satisfied by my answer please click yes below the answer If not satisfied post your reply back so that i can explain better & BEST OF LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear friend,

sin(a+b)=3/5 cos(a-b)=12/13

sin,cos are possitive .so,they lies in Q1




(by pythagarus rule adj side is 4)

3 5


4 (since sin(a+B)=3/4)





therefore tan(a+b)=3/4





5 13 (by pythagarus rule opp'' side is 5)



12 (since cos(a-b)=12/13)


(therefore tan(a-b)=5/12)





= 3/4 +5/12

1-3/4 *5/12

(by solving this you get tan2a=56/33)

I think you like this .

Please,please,please approve it...

gud bye.All the best.
