The tangent function (tan), is a trigonometric function that relates the ratio of the length of the side opposite a given angle in a right-angled triangle to the length of the side adjacent to that angle.
How to solve trigonometric equations step-by-step?
To solve a trigonometric simplify the equation using trigonometric identities. Then, write the equation in a standard form, and isolate the variable using algebraic manipulation to solve for the variable. Use inverse trigonometric functions to find the solutions, and check for extraneous solutions.
What is a basic trigonometric equation?
A basic trigonometric equation has the form sin(x)=a, cos(x)=a, tan(x)=a, cot(x)=a
How to convert radians to degrees?
The formula to convert radians to degrees: degrees = radians * 180 / π
What is cotangent equal to?
The cotangent function (cot(x)), is the reciprocal of the tangent function.cot(x) = cos(x) / sin(x)
