Introduction To Trigonometry
Ex 8.3 | Question 4

Text Solution


\(\tan ({90^0} - \theta ) = \cot \theta \)


Given that:

\(\begin{align}\,\tan A = \cot B \dots \rm (i)\end{align}\)

We know that,

\(\tan A = \cot \left( {{{90}^0} - A} \right)\)

By substituting this in equation (i) we get:

\[\begin{align} \cot \,({90^0} - A) &= \cot B\\ {90^0} - A &= B\\ A + B &= {90^0} \end{align}\]
