1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Reduce to a single term:
I really have been spending a wretched time to solve that
tan (x/2)*(1+sec x)(1+sec 2x)(1+sec 4x)...................................(1+sec (2^n)x)


2. Relevant equations

tan (x/2)=2 tan (x/4) / 1- tan^2 (x/4)

can this ever help 1+tan^2=sec^2

3. The attempt at a solution

Please help!!!!!!!!!! me to get started
