Dear Sunny
 
 

In case that C is obtuse,

 

Then C>90.

So A+B msut be less than 90... (because in a triangle A+B+C=180, and C is above 90)

So tan(A+B) must be postivie... (Since A+B is acute

tan(A+B) = (tanA+tanB)/(1-tanAtanB)

So 1-tanAtanB>0..... (Only then tan(A+B) can be positive)

Hence tanAtanB

 

Hope it helps
