**Trigonometric Ratios CBSE NCERT Solutions Chapter 8 Exercise 8.1 Question 2**

**2. **In fig 8.13, find tan P - cot R.

** Solution:**

In , using **Pythagoras Theorem**, we can say that

cm

tan P = (Opposite side to angle P) / (Adjacent side to angle P) = QR/PQ = 5/12 ** (1)**

cot R = (Adjacent side to angle R) / (Opposite side to angle R) = QR / PQ = 5/12 ** (2)**

From** (1)** and **(2)**, we can say that

tan P - cot R = = 0
