I'm not sure the working step.

tan x + tan y = sin(x + y) / cos x + tan y

This my ans;

LHS = sin x cos y + cos x sin y / cos x cos y

= sin x + sin y

= tan x + tan y

= RHS

Hey choi105.

I think you may have copied this down wrong.

Do you mean sin(x+y)/[cos(x) + tan(y)] instead? - April 25th 2013, 07:05 PMchoi105Re: Prove the following identities
yup.

The identity written is not true. Please recheck the question.

sorry for typing error.

The que: tan x + tan y = sin(x + y) / cos x + cos y - April 26th 2013, 08:30 PMsa-ri-ga-maRe: Prove the following identities
Again it is wrong. Check the Dinominator.

I think RHS would be having cosx cos y in the denominator.

write tanx and tany in the form of sinx / cosx and siny/cosy. take LCM and use the formula for sum of angles the numerator and you have the result.
