    \[\tan(\frac{1}{2}\cos^{-1} \frac{3}{5})=\frac{1-\frac{3}{5}}{\frac{4}{5}}=\frac{1}{2}\]

    \(\frac 12 \) is the correct answer.

    In the componendo dividendo step, the final answer is \(\tan^2 x =\frac 1 4 \)

    This is how @Mertsj got that and it is right \[\large \tan x/2 = \frac{\sin x/2 }{\cos x/2} = {\sqrt{1-cosx \over 2} \over \sqrt{1+cosx \over 2}}\] \[\large \tan x/2 = {\sqrt{1-cosx } \over \sqrt{1+cosx}} * \frac{\sqrt{1+cosx}}{\sqrt{1+cosx}}\] \[\large \tan x/2= {sinx \over 1+\cos x }\]

    It seems that trying to attack it your way, and ending with a \(\tan^2\), there's no real easy way to see that it can't be -1/2. However, doing it mertsj's method, only outputs the single solution.

    I'm going off of what foolformath said, "In the componendo dividendo step, the final answer is \(\tan^2(x)=\frac{1}{4}\)." I can't see a good reason why you need to exclude the possible answer of -1/2 here. Also, \(\sin(\cos^{-1}(3/5))\) should have two solutions. Namely, 4/5 and -4/5. So you should still get both solutions.
