tan x + tan π/3

------------------ = square root 3

1 - tan x tan π/3

**Reiny**, Friday, April 27, 2012 at 11:56pmyou should recognize that they are using the formula

tan(A+B) = (tanA + tanB)/(1 - tanAtanB)

so

(tanx + tan π/3)/(1 - tanxtan(π/3) = √3

becomes

tan(x+π/3) = √3 ,

I know tan 60° or tan 240° = √3 OR tan π/3 or tan 4π/3 = √3

so x+π/3 = π/3 OR x+π/3 = 4π/3

x = 0 or x = π

but the period of tanx is π

so

x = 0 , π , 2π
