# If a cos2θ + b si

Given,

a cos2θ + b sin 2θ = c and α and β are the roots of the equation.

Using the formula of multiple angles, we know that –

and

a(1 – tan2θ) + 2b tan θ - c(1 + tan2θ) = 0

(-c – a)tan2θ + 2b tan θ - c + a = 0 …(1)

Clearly it is a quadratic equation in tan θ and as α and β are its solutions.

tan α and tan β are the roots of this quadratic equation.

We know that sum of roots of a quadratic equation:

ax2 + bx + c = 0 is given by (-b/a)

tan α + tan β =

Hence,
