math.tan()

Computes the tangent of its argument x, measured in radians.

Parameters

x - Floating point value representing an angle in radians.

Return Value

Upon successful completion, this function returns the tangent of x.

If x is math.NAN, a NaN will be returned.
If x is ±0, x will be returned.
If x is math.POS_INFINITY or math.NEG_INFINITY, a domain error occurs and a NaN will be returned.
If x is subnormal, a range error occurs and x will be returned.
If the result would cause an overflow, a range error occurs and math.tan() will return math.POS_HUGE_VAL or math.NEG_HUGE_VAL, with the same sign as the result of the function.
