**Reiny**, Tuesday, May 1, 2012 at 4:52pmtan(A-B) = (tanA - tanB)/(1+tanAtanB)

but tanA = 2tanB

so above

= (2tanB - tanB)/(1 + 2tanBtanB)

= tanB/(1+2tan^2B)

= (sinB/cosB) / (1 + 2sin^2 B /cos^2 B)

= sinB/cosB /[(cos^2 B + 2sin^2 B)/cos^2 B]

= (sinB/cosB) * (cos^2 B)/(cos^2 B + 2sin^2 B)

= sinBcosB /(cos^2 B + 2(1 - cos^2 B) )

= sinBcosB / (2 - cos^2 B)

= 2sinBcosB/ (4 - 2cos^2 B)

= sin 2B / (4 - 2cos^2 B)

which is different from yours,

I can't seem to find my error if there is one.
