I'm trying to solve this but I honestly have no idea how to move forward. All I have done so far is this:
theta=tan^1(1)
Now I'm stuck <_>

Avva 135 is just one of the answer, it has several answers

@amistre64 tan (theta)=1 will have several solutions

yup you can add 180 degrees and you'll figure out that 135 n 315 both have tan of 1

\[\tan \theta=1\] so \[\theta = n\pi +3\frac{\pi}{4}\] n=0, 1, 2, 3 and so on

So this pretty much a unit circledependent problem?

Could it also be \[7\pi/4 + \pi n\]?

greysmitherBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
since both of those quadrants create 1?

ash2326Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3
Yeah it should be \[ n\pi \pm \pi/4\] n=1,2 ,3 and so on I missed that, it'd include \(7\pi/4 + n\pi\) also

I thought that you couldn't include pi/4 and 5pi/4 in quadrants 1 and 3 because they equal 1 when I'm looking for 1?

Its okay I really appreciate your help

We have \[\tan x=1\] so x is eithere 3pi/4 , 7pi/4 and so on \[x= n\pi \pi/4\] if n=1 x=3 pi/4 n=2 x= 7 pi/4 so this will include all possible solutions. This is your answer

So, just to clarify \[x=\pi/4+n \pi\] is the final answer. I can't thank you enough!! I wish I could give you 100 medals ;)
