Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0tan(x) does not tend to a limit as x tends to infinity. tan is periodic remember? dw:1346458442949:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the idea is \[ \large \lim_{x\to\pi/2}\tan x=+\infty \] \[ \large \lim_{x\to\pi/2}\tan x=\infty \] then \[ \large \lim_{x\to+\infty}\arctan x=\frac{\pi}{2} \] \[ \large \lim_{x\to\infty}\arctan x=\frac{\pi}{2} \]
