Hello, silvercats!

 $\text{What is the formula for: }\:\tan A\,-\,\tan B\:\text{ and }\:\cot A \,-\,\cot B$

$\tan A \,-\,\tan B \;=\;\frac{\sin A}{\cos A}\,-\,\frac{\sin B}{\cos B} \;=\;\frac{\sin A\cos B\,-\,\cos A\sin B}{\cos A\,\cos B} \;=\;\frac{\sin(A\,-\,B)}{\cos A\,\cos B}$

$\cot A\,-\,\cot B \;=\;\frac{\cos A}{\sin A}\,-\,\frac{\cos B}{\sin B} \;=\;\frac{\sin B\cos A\,-\,\cos B\sin A}{\sin A\,\sin B} \;=\;\frac{\sin(B\,-\,A)}{\sin A\.\sin B}$

Are these what you're looking for?

I think ,NO. Like Cos(A)+Cos(B)=2 Cos[(A+B)/2].Cos [(A-B)/2],there is a formula for Tan too.not just sin/cos thing

tan A - tan B = (1 + tan A tan B)tan(A - B)
