Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0not sure how to do this, but I would use a comparison test.. maybe showing that first: tan xn = sin xn/cos xn = nsinxn / ncosxn then showing: [sin x is increasing on x e (0, pi/2) ] (n1)(sin x(n1)) + sin xn < nsinxn [cos x is decreasing on x e (0, pi/2) ] and (n1)(cos x(n1)) + cos xn > ncosxn Then [(n1)(sin x(n1)) + sin xn]/[(n1)(cos x(n1)) + cos xn] < n sin xn/ n cos xn Similar reasoning to show it's > tan x1. but ye, Just a suggestion, it's probably wrong. but ye use if you can..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it's \[\sin x_{n1}\] n1 times... so \[\sin x_{n1} +\sin x_{n1} +\sin x_{n1} +\sin x_{n1} + ... +\sin x_{n1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know !bot I want to solve: tanx1<(sinx1+sinx2+...+sinxn)/(cosx1+cosx2+...+cosxn)<tanxn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well, you can't solve that. I'm saying you can use a comparison to prove it... Read my first message thoroughly

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I see your first commend. But choosing those two terms in num and den confusing. However I accept your opinion for sin and cos.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[[n.\sin x _{1} \le \sin x _{1}+\sin x _{2}+...\sin x _{n}\le n.\sin x _{n}\\] n.\cos x _{n} \le \cos x _{1}+\cos x _{2}+...\cos x _{n}\le n.\cos x _{1}\]\] as a known a<b<c ,A<B<C => a/C<b/B<c/A so \[\tan x _{1} \le (\sin x _{1}+\sin x _{2}+...\sin x _{n})/(\cos x _{1}+\cos x _{2}+...\cos x _{n}) \le \tan x _{n}\]
