# If tan (A + B) = √3 and tan (A - B) = 1/√3; 0° < (A + B) ≤ 90° ; A > B, find A and B

**Solution:**

We use the trigonometric table and the trigonometric identities to solve the problem.

Given that, tan (A + B) = √3 and, tan (A - B) = 1/√3

Since, tan 60° = √3 and tan 30° = 1/√3

Therefore, tan (A + B) = tan 60°

(A + B) = 60° ...(i)

tan (A - B) = tan 30°

(A - B) = 30° ...(ii)

On adding both equations (i) and (ii), we obtain:

A + B + A - B = 60° + 30°

2A = 90°

A = 45°

By substituting the value of A in equation (i) we obtain

A + B = 60°

45° + B = 60°

B = 60° - 45° = 15°

Therefore, ∠A = 45° and ∠B = 15° (A > B).
