The difference between the two acute angles of a right- angled triangle is 2 π/5 radians. Express the angles in degrees.
I’ve multipled 2 π/5 * 180/ π and got the result 72 degree But the answer is 81 degree and 9 degree. Please explain me!!!

They ask for two angles. Their sum is 90 degrees and their difference is 2 pi/5 radians or 72 degrees.

All you did was convert the difference to degrees. You did that right, but that was not the question.

A + B = 90
A - B = 72
2A = 162
A = 81
B = 90 - 81 = 9

Thank You but i did before you anyways thx

How do I find the critical values? y= 4/x + tan(πx/8) What I did is I simplified it to y= 4x^-1 + tan(πx/8) then I took the derivative y'= -4x^-2 + (π/8)(sec(πx/8))^2 Then I simplied it y'= -4/x^2 + (π/8)(sec(πx/8))^2
