# The angle between the asymptotes to the hyperbola $\large\frac{x^{2}}{16}-\frac{y^{2}}{9}=$$1 is $\begin{array}{1 1}(1)\pi-2\tan^{-1}\left(\begin{array}{c} 3 \\ 4 \end{array}\right)&(2)\pi-2\tan^{-1}\left(\begin{array}{c} 4 \\ 3 \end{array}\right)\\(3)2\tan^{-1}\frac{3}{4}&(4)2\tan^{-1}\left(\begin{array}{c} 4 \\ 3 \end{array}\right)\end{array}$ Can you answer this question? ## 1 Answer 0 votes \large\frac{x^2}{16} -\frac{y^2}{9}$$=1$
$a^2= 167,b^2=9 => a= 4,b=3$
Angle between the asymptotes $=2 \tan^{-1} \bigg( \large\frac{b}{a} \bigg)$
$\qquad= 2 \tan ^{-1} \bigg( \large\frac{3}{4} \bigg)$
Hence 3 is the correct answer.
