    To Find the Value of tan

    Please help me to solve the following :::

    If \cos (\alpha + \beta) = \frac{4}{5}, \sin(\alpha - \beta) = \frac{5}{13} and \alpha, \beta \in (0, \frac{\pi}{4}), then find the value of \tan (2 \alpha).

    Thanks in advance..

    if \cos(\alpha + \beta) = \frac{4}{5} , then \sin(\alpha + \beta) = \frac{3}{5}

    if \sin(\alpha - \beta) = \frac{5}{13} , then \cos(\alpha - \beta) = \frac{12}{13}

    \sin(2\alpha) = \sin[(\alpha + \beta) + (\alpha - \beta)] = \sin(\alpha + \beta)\cos(\alpha - \beta) + \cos(\alpha + \beta)\sin(\alpha - \beta)<br />

    \cos(2\alpha) = \cos[(\alpha + \beta) + (\alpha - \beta)] = \cos(\alpha + \beta)\cos(\alpha - \beta) - \sin(\alpha + \beta)\sin(\alpha - \beta)

    finally, note that ...

    \displaystyle \tan(2\alpha) = \frac{\sin(2\alpha)}{\cos(2\alpha)}
