Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\tan 2t=\frac{2\tan t }{1\tan ^{2} t },put t=112.5\] tan2t=tan(112.5)*2=tan225=tan(180+45)=tan45=1 \[\frac{ 2\tan t }{1\tan ^{2}t }=\1\] \[\frac{ 2t }{1t ^{2} }=1\] 2t=1t^2 \[t ^{2}+2t1=0,t=\frac{ 2\pm \sqrt{2^{2}4\left( 1 \right)\left( 1 \right)} }{2\times1}\] \[t=\frac{ 2\pm \sqrt{8} }{2 }=\frac{ 1\pm \sqrt{2} }{ 1 }\] in the second quadrant tan is negative. \[Hence \tan112.5=1\sqrt{2}\]
