From table: tan20=0.3639 tan40= 0.839 cot80=0.1763. & cot20=2.7474 LHS: tan20+2 tan40+ 4 cot80= 0.3639+2(0.839)+4(0.1763)= =0.3639+1.678+0.7052=2.747=cot20 (Final answer)

Dear Student,
L.H.S= tan20^{\circ} + 2tan40^{\circ} + 4 cot80^{\circ}
tan20^{\circ} + 2tan40^{\circ} + 4 [(cot^240^{\circ}-1)/2cot40^{\circ}]   using cot 2A = (cot^2 A -1)/2cotA
tan20^{\circ} + (2 cot^2 40^{\circ} -2 +2tan40^{\circ}cot40^{\circ})/cot40^{\circ}
=tan20^{\circ} + 2 cot 40^{\circ}
tan20^{\circ} + 2 [(cot^2 20^{\circ} - 1)/2cot20^{\circ}]
=[(tan20^{\circ}cot20^{\circ} +cot^2 20^{\circ} - 1)/cot20^{\circ}]
=cot^2 20^{\circ}/cot20^{\circ}
cot20^{\circ} = R.H.S [Proved]
 
Hope it helps!
with regards,
Soumendu
