Transform
arctan x + arctan y = pi/4 into algebraic expression

A) x+xy-y = 1
B) x-xy-y = 1
C) x+xy+y = 1
D) x-xy+y = 1

Plsss help

1. using the sum of tangents formula,

tan(arctan x + arctan y)
=

tan(arctanx)+tan(arctany)
----------------------------- = tan(pi/4)
1 - tan(arctanx)-tan(arctany)

(x+y)/(1-xy) = 1
x+y = 1-xy
x+xy+y = 1

Arrange these in order from least to greatest: arctan(-sqrt3), arctan 0, arctan(1/2) So far I got the first two values, arctan(-sqrt3), and that's 150 degrees. Arctan 0 would be zero degrees. I'll use just one answer for now, but

Let f be a function defined by f(x)= arctan x/2 + arctan x. the value of f'(0) is? It's 3/2 but I am not very clear on how to obtain the answer. I changed arctan x/2 into dy/dx=(4-2x)/(4sqrt(4+x^2)) but that's as far as I got.

also: integral of tan^(-1)y dy how is integration of parts used in that? You write: arctan(y)dy = d[y arctan(y)] - y d[arctan(y)] Here we again have used the product rule: d(fg) = f dg + g df You then use that: d[arctan(y)] =

Now we prove Machin's formula using the tangent addition formula: tan(A+B)= tanA+tanB/1-tanAtanB. If A= arctan(120/119) and B= -arctan(1/239), how do you show that arctan(120/119)-arctan(1/239)=arctan1?
