Two vectors , (vector A) and (vector B) have equal magnitudes. If magnitude of (vector A + vector B) is equal to n times the magnitude of (vector A – vector B), then the angle between (vector A) and (vector B) is: Answer : cos^-1(n^2 – 1/n^2 + 1) or negative cosine of n(square) minus 1 over n(square) plus 1. could some one explain the solution. this question is from odisha JEE 2010.

\left |A+B \right |^{2}=n^{2}\left | A-B \right |^{2}
A^{2}+B^{2}+2ABcos\theta =n^{2}\left \{ A^{2}+B^{2}-2ABcos\theta \right \}
From here you will get
cos\theta =\frac{n^{^{2}}-1}{n^{2}+1}

its ok are not .please feedback me.cos\theta =\frac{n^{^{2}}-1}{n^{2}+1}From here you will getA^{2}+B^{2}+2ABcos\theta =n^{2}\left \{ A^{2}+B^{2}-2ABcos\theta \right \}\left |A+B \right |^{2}=n^{2}\left | A-B \right |^{2}
if u satisfied with my answer you can approve me
