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

ajprincess Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\frac{\theta}{2}=\frac{5\pi}{8}\] \[\theta=\frac{5\pi}{4}\] plugging this in the formula gives u \[\tan\frac{5\pi}{4}=\frac{2tan\frac{5\pi}{8}}{1tan^2\frac{5\pi}{8}}\] \[\pi=180\] so \[\frac{5\pi}{4}=225\] do u knw the value of tan225?

yup good:)

ajprincess Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
so \[\tan\frac{5\pi}{4}=1\]. \[1=\frac{2tan\frac{5\pi}{8}}{1tan^2\frac{5\pi}{8}}\] Let us assume \[x=\tan\frac{5\pi}{8}\] \[1=\frac{2x}{1x^2}\] \[1x^2=2x\] \[x^2+2x1=0\] Can u find x?
