    Is this the case for cos, sine or tangent?

    I always get confused about this

    I heard that you add 180deg to the tan function as it's period is 180?

    You're probably right. I haven't learned for tan yet as I'm with the Scottish education system

    I will post my working to it underneath.

    In the example that you showed you had the 2 solutions less than 360

    If you had both of them for Tan then the rule of adding 360 to both answers still applies

    You are correct

    We do not advise posting complete solutions

    I understand that you wanted to check your own understanding but it would be better to hide your solution using a

    So in what situations do we not add 360?

    I do not really understand your question

    If you have a solution you can always add 360 to get another solution

    The period of the tan graph is 180 degrees.

    The period of the sin and cos graphs is 360 degrees.

    so to get another solution for a tan function we add 180 and NOT 360?

    360 will get you another answer but you will obviously miss one out!

    Adding 180 twice is the same as adding 360

    from the that persons solutions I can see they DO NOT add 360/2pi degrees

    If I add 2pi to pi/6 I get 13pi/6 not 5pi/5

    what am I doing wrong?

    thanks

    The limit states that x is not greater than 2pi

    Why are you adding 2pi to pi/6

    arc cos 1/2 = pi/3

    The limit states that x is not greater than 2pi
    then what are we adding on to get these values?
