Solve tan2 x + tan x – 1 = 0 for the principal value(s) to two
decimal places.

Please Explain

  • Trigonometry -

    * Solve tan^2x + tanx-1=0 for the principal value(s) to two decimal places.

  • Trigonometry -

    Let y=tan(x)
    y²+y-1=0
    use quadratic formula
    y=(-1±√(5))/2
    or
    tan(x)=(-1±√(5))/2
    find tan-1(-1±√(5))/2 using your calculator.
