    remember that the tan function repeats every 180 degrees.

    As that bear french pepe dude said, tan repeats every 180 degrees. So \tan(x)=\tan(x+180). Equivalently, \tan(x)=\tan(x-180) which is the one you want to use.

    Hint: The values of tan(angle) from 0 - 90 repeats themselves every 180 degrees. This means the value of tan30 is the same as the value for tan210.
