Description

The tan function computes the tangent of x (measured in radians). This is identical to the calculation of

Example:

Example - Tangent function
Workings
#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>
int main()
{
double x = 0.3333;
double result = tan(x);
printf("The tangent of %.4lf is %.4lf\n", x, result);
return 0;
}
Solution
Output:
The tangent of 0.3333 is 0.3462
