Use reduction identities to determine if the following statement is true or false:
tan (A-B) = tan (B-A)

Is this starement True or False ?

  • Trig - ,

    easiest way:
    let Ø be A-B, then B-A = -Ø
    but we know tan (-Ø) = - tanØ

    so tan(A-B) = tan(B-A) is false


    LS = (tanA - tanB)/(1 + tanAtanB)
    RS = (tanB-tanA)/(1+tanAtanB)
    the LS is opposite the RS, not equal
