    `\(sqrt{}\)` u can use this to type radicals.

    \[\tan\theta=\frac{2tan(\frac{\theta}{2})}{1-tan^2(\frac{\theta}{2})}\]

    \[\frac{\theta}{2}=\frac{5\pi}{8}\] \[\theta=\frac{5\pi}{4}\] plugging this in the formula gives u \[\tan\frac{5\pi}{4}=\frac{2tan\frac{5\pi}{8}}{1-tan^2\frac{5\pi}{8}}\] \[\pi=180\] so \[\frac{5\pi}{4}=225\] do u knw the value of tan225?

    so \[\tan\frac{5\pi}{4}=1\]. \[1=\frac{2tan\frac{5\pi}{8}}{1-tan^2\frac{5\pi}{8}}\] Let us assume \[x=\tan\frac{5\pi}{8}\] \[1=\frac{2x}{1-x^2}\] \[1-x^2=2x\] \[x^2+2x-1=0\] Can u find x?
