use trig. identities to find the exact value.

tan 25° + tan 5° / 1- tan 25° tan 5°

  • trig -

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

    I believe you meant to type
    (tan 25° + tan 5°) /( 1- tan 25° tan 5°)

    now it fits the above pattern and it equals

    tan(25+5) = tan 30°

    from my 30-60-90 triangle I know that
    tan 30° = 1/√3 or √3/3
