    if u do tan-1 of both sides then tan-1(tanx)=x

    and x=tan-1(blah)

    try tan-1(tan60) or any number and u will get 60 back

    still confused - even more now

    well u have got to

    tanx=blah blah blah
    but u want to find x not tanx

    so u have to do arctan or tan^-1 or both sides

    to get x=tan^-1(blahblah)

    as tan^1(tanx)=x
