## What is equal to tan?

Each of these functions are derived in some way from sine and cosine. The tangent of x is defined to be its sine divided by its cosine: tan x = sin x cos x . The secant of x is 1 divided by the cosine of x: sec x = 1 cos x , and the cosecant of x is defined to be 1 divided by the sine of x: csc x = 1 sin x .

## What is the tangent problem?

In the tangent line problem, we have a point on a slope of a graph, and need to find the slope of the graph at that particular point. This line is called the tangent line.
