(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Find the exact value of the function:

tan(cos^-1 0.5)

2. Relevant equations

I used this formula: y=sin^-1=sin y=x for the first part, how do I solve the second part of the problem tanx (x)?

3. The attempt at a solution

x=cos^-1 (0.5)

cos(N)=0.5

N= pi/3

Then I tried tanx(x)=

I'm stuck
