tan(a+b) = (tan(a) + tan(b)]/[1 - tan(a)tan(b)]

(1+tanA)(1+tanB) = 2

1+tanA +tanB+tanAtanB = 2

tanA + tanB + tanAtanB = 1

tanA + tanB = 1 - tanAtanB

[tanA + tanB]/[1 - tanAtanB] = 1 = tan(A+B)

tan(A+B) = 1

A+B = arctan(1) + kπ

Ans:

(θ + ϕ) = π/4 + kπ, where k is any integer

On the interval [0, 2π):

(θ + ϕ) = π/4, 5π/4

(1 + tanθ)(1 + tanϕ) = 2

1 (1 + tanϕ) + tanθ (1 + tanϕ) = 2

1 + tanϕ + tanθ + tanθ tanϕ = 2

tanϕ + tanθ = 1 - tanθ tanϕ

(tanθ + tanϕ) / (1 - tanθ tanϕ) = 1

tan(θ + ϕ) = 1

θ + ϕ = 1

Hence, θ + ϕ = nπ + (π/4), where n is an integer.
