Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think they may be referring to a trig identity like tan (st)=tan s  tan t/1 + tan s tan t?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes it does refer to those identities. I can do that part of the problem, but what I don't really understand is how do you get to the point of for example: \[\tan\frac{ \pi }{ 4} + \tan \frac{ \pi }{ 3 }\] or something like that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\tan(\frac{17 \pi}{12})=\tan(\frac{17 \pi}{12}+2 \pi)=\tan(\frac{17 \pi +24 \pi}{12})=\tan(\frac{7 \pi }{12})\] \[\tan(\frac{\pi}{3}+\frac{\pi}{4})\]
