I also tried that, but what is your solution then?

4. Skaematik

5. RonnyDeKoning

The sample is $(2 \sqrt{3})\div3$

6. Skaematik

did you type the question correctly? I'm not getting (23√)÷3 as the answer to cot15-tan15.

7. RonnyDeKoning

It's in degree right?

8. Skaematik

@RonnyDeKoning if you solve what i had above you will get 2root3. Which is the answer.

9. RonnyDeKoning

Sorry, i just looked in my book, the correct answear is $2\sqrt{3}$, sorry, can you show me how you got it?

That is for tan, how get cot is it 1/ tan?

12. Skaematik

it is a trigonometric identity

No Geometry, and you have to calculate it.
