**Reiny**, Sunday, September 19, 2010 at 8:54amreason it this way

let 2x = Ø

then tanØ = 3

Ø must be in quadrants I or III

and using your calculator

Ø = 79.52° or 180+79.52 = 259.52°

then 2x = 79.52 or 2x = 259.52

x=39.76° or x = 129.76°

check:

tan(2x39.76) = tan 79.52 = 3

same for the other one.

I don't know how "they" got your answers.
