# Trigonometric Identity: tan(x +/- y): Proof

in Threespeak3 months ago (edited)

In this video I go over a quick proof of the trigonometric identities tan(x + y) and tan(x – y). The identity is simple to derive because we can use the identities which I derived in my earlier videos for sin(x +/- y) and cos(x +/- y), as well as the fact that the tangent function, tan, is just equal to the ratio of sine over cosine. Although deriving the set of identities for tan(x +/- y) is pretty simple, I show how even that process can be simplified further by utilizing the use of the notations “+/-“ and “-/+”. This allows for the solving of two identities or sets of identities at the same time! I will be utilizing this set of trig identities in my later videos so make sure to watch this video!

Wow... this calculation made me to remember my secondary school age and how i do calculate this mathematics back then.
Thanks for such an educative video.
