    when x= 0 \(0= a \tan^2 \theta \\ 0=\tan \theta\) for what value of theta is tan theta =0 ???

    it means when x= 0, then theta=0

    correct :) when x=a \(a= a \tan^2 \theta \\ 1=\tan \theta\) for what value of theta is tan theta =1 ???

    yes, pi/4 is correct. is this problem related to integration ?

    oh, then ok. otherwise, we have multiple values of theta when tan theta =0 or 1, but for integration purpose, what we did is sufficient.
