hah is that means that 360<4B<720?

so tan4B>0, 360<4B<(90+360), (180+360)<4B<(270+360)

90<B<112.5 , 135<4B<157.5 ?

tan2B is negative or tan 4B is positive means what? - Jun 21st 2013, 05:24 AMPlatoRe: limit for angle
It is clear to me that you don't understand much of this, do you?

From the given it must be true that . Thus any answer you find must be in that range.

If then or , which is in that range.

If then it could be or , which is**NOT in that range**.

So we must take another course.

Suppose that or then .

Solving we get , which is in the range.
