# If tan 2A = cot (A – 18°), where 2A is an acute angle, find the value of A

**Solution:**

We will be using the trigonometric ratios of complementary angles to solve the given question.

tan (90° - θ) = cot θ

Given that:

tan 2A = cot (A - 18°) ….(i)

But tan 2A = cot (90° - 2A)

By substituting this in equation (i) we get:

cot (90° - 2A) = cot (A - 18°)

90° - 2A = A - 18°

3A = 108°

A = 108°/3

A = 36°
