Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then I recommend using the series for tan^(1)x, because I know that this series approaches for very large x the value pi / 2, so you can just take a multiply (2 times) of that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but that's only my first intuition and maybe it doesn't answer that problem rigorously

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ \lim_{x \to \infty} \tan^{1} x = \frac{\pi}{2} \] \[ \lim_{x \to \infty} 2 \tan^{1}x = 2 \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{(1)^{n+1}}{2n1}x^{2n+1}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[ \large \lim_{x \to \infty} 2 \tan^{1}x =\lim_{x \to \infty}\ 2 \sum_{n=1}^\infty \frac{(1)^{n+1}}{2n1}x^{2n+1} \] Shouldn't forget to carry out the limit
