TopNewestBy De Moivre's theorem

\((cos\theta + i sin\theta)^{n} = cos(n\theta) + i sin(n\theta)\)

Writting the binomial expression of

\((cos\theta + i sin\theta)^{n}\)

Now

Equating real part to

\(cos(n\theta)\)And imaginary part to

\(sin(n\theta)\)We get(let cos = c, sin = s)

\(\displaystyle c(n\theta) = c^{n} - C_2^{n} c^{n -2} s^{2} +\ldots\)

\(\displaystyle s(n\theta) = C_1^{n} c^{n-1} s - C_3^{n}c^{n-3} s^{3} + \ldots\)

Dividing equation 2 by 1 we get

\(\displaystyle t(n\theta) = \frac{C_1^{n} c^{n-1}s - C_3^{n} c^{n-3}s^{3} + \ldots}{c^{n} - C_2^{n}c^{n-2}s^{2} + \ldots}\)

Now divide by \(\cos^{n} \theta\) in numerator and denominator to get the required expression.

Hence Proved!

Thanks Good solution

I would solve this one by using De Moiver's identity (cosθ+jsinθ)^n=cosnθ+jsinnθ. Then tannθ=sinnθ/cosnθ. By expanding into powers we have (cosθ+jsinθ)^n=Sum(j^k *sin(θ)^k * cos(θ)^(n-k) * (n per k) )=Sum(j^k *tan(θ)^k * cos(θ)^n * (n per k) ). By grouping into real and imaginary parts we can get the result given. (I should learn to write in these posts in a more beautiful way :))) )

To Brilliant.org ,

Here after a comment is posted and when we click the edit button and want mention someone the menu is not coming . we have to make a new comment for this

For example firstly I forget about the people in the second, third and four comment and when i clicked the edit and type their name the menu was not displayed

This does need to be fixed, though. I thought I was the only one, but apparently not.

tan (A+B+C+......)= \(\frac{S_{1}-S_{3}+S_{5}-.....}{1-S_{2}+S_{4}-......}\)Where \(S_{i}\) is sum of products of i terms taken at a time.

For A=B=C...=\(\theta\), You will get desired result!
