tanθ = 0, all real numbers

I know the answer is πn, but I don't understand how they got this. I get that tanθ = 0 on π and 2π on the unit circle, so did they just put n on the end of π because of this?

in sinŲ/cosŲ = 0 , that is only possible if sinŲ = 0

and you should know that the basic sine curve has zeros at 0 , π and 2π

since the period of sinŲ = π,

a new answer can be obtained by simply adding/subtracting multiples of π (or nπ) to any anwer

So why not start with 0 + nπ = nπ
