If A + B = 225, then find (1 + cot(A))/(cot(A)) * (1 + cot(B))/(cot(B)).

Given A + B = 225 = B = 225 - A= B = 180 + 45 - A = B = 180 + (45 - A) (As 225 = 180 + 45)Putting value of B in question we getcot A/(1 + cot A) * cot {180 + ( 45 - A)} / [ 1 + cot {180 + (45 - A)}= cot A/(1 + cot A) * cot (45 - A) / [1 + cot (45 - A)] [As cot (180 + A) = cot A]= cot A/(1 + cot A) * [ {cot 45cot A + 1 / cot A - cot 45} / {1 + (cot 45 cot A + 1) / (cot A - cot 45)}][As cot (A - B) = (cot B cot A + 1) / (cot B - cot A) ]= cot A/(1 + cot A) * [ { cot A + 1 / cot A - 1} / {1 + ( cot A + 1) / (cot A - 1)}] (As cot 45 = 1)= cot A/(1 + cot A) * [ { cot A + 1 / cot A - 1} / { (cot A - 1+ cot A + 1) / (cot A - 1)}] [ Taking L.C.M.]= cot A/(1 + cot A) * [{cot A + 1 / cot A - 1} / { (2 cot A) / (cotA - 1)}]= cot A/(1 + cot A) * (cot A + 1) / (cot A - 1) * (cot A - 1) / (2 cot A)= 1/2

So you are trying to find the reciprocal of that which is just 2.
