\[\tan \left( \frac{x}{2} \right) = \frac{\sin x}{1 + \cos x}\] plug x = 330º

i did that, and i checked the answer in the back and it did not go right. I messed up somewhere but i do not know where.

maybe you forgot to rationalize the denominator?

Did you consider the quadrant? 330º is Quadrant IV (Tangent is Negative). 165º is Quadrant II (Tangent is negative) Please show your work and we'll be able to see where you wander off.

the answer is square root 3 minus 2 in the book. I cannot quite get it to match

That's it. Don't panic that it does not yet match the book. Keep going!
