The tangent function is y = tg(x).

The graph of the function is a tangent. The function is periodic, that is, repeats. The tangent period is defined as T= π. The function is incremental.

The branches of the graph are at the same distance from each other (π), being “parallel” with respect to the Y axis. The scope and scope of the function are all valid numbers.

Example tan xy function graph:

y = tg(x) tan(x)

y = tg(x) y = tan(x) graphing example

  • y = – tg(x) -tan(x) – the chart is shown horizontally
tangent graphing y = - tg(x) -tan(x)

  • y = tg(2x) tan(2x) the graph is “compressed”, the period is defined as T=1/2 π
tan graphing y = tg(2x) tan(2x)

  • y = tg(1/2x) tan(1/2x) graph “expands” and period – T= 2π
Tangent graphing y = tg(1/2x) tan(1/2x)

  • y = tg(x)+2 tan(x)+2 – the graph is shifted along the axis Y by 2 steps;
Tangent graphing y = tg(x)+2 tan(x)+2

  • y = tg(x+2) tan(x+2) the graph is shifted along the x-axis by 2 steps.
Tan graphing y = tg(x+2) tan(x+2)
