Ex 2.2, 4 Prove 2tan-1 1/2 + tan-1 1/7 = tan-1 31/17 First we calculate value of 2tan-1 ๐Ÿ/๐Ÿ We know that 2tan-1x = tan-1 ((๐Ÿ๐ฑ )/( ๐Ÿ โˆ’ ๐ฑ^๐Ÿ )) Replacing x with 1/2 2tan-1 1/2 = tan-1 (2 ร— 1/2)/(1 โˆ’ (1/2)2) = tan-1 (1/(1 โˆ’ 1/4)) = tan-1 (1/((4 โˆ’ 1)/4)) = tan-1 (1/(3/4)) = tan-1 (4/3) Taking L.H.S. 2tan-1 1/2 + tan-1 1/7 Putting value of 2tan-1 1/2 = tan-1 4/3 + tan-1 1/7 = tan-1 ((4/3 + 1/7 )/( 1โˆ’ 4/3 ร— 1/7)) = tan-1 (((4 ร— 7 +3 ร— 1 )/( 7 ร— 3) )/( (7 ร— 3 โˆ’ 4)/(7 ร— 3))) = tan-1 (((28 + 3 )/( 21) )/( ( 21 โˆ’ 4)/21)) = tan-1 ((31/( 21) )/(17/21)) = tan-1 (31/21 ร— 21/17)= tan-1 (31/17) = R.H.S. Hence, L.H.S. = R.H.S. Hence Proved
