Show tan(x): (-pi/2, pi/2) -> R has a continuous inverse arctan(x) : R -> (-pi/2, pi/2).

You may assume that tan(x) is continuous and strictly increasing on the given domain, and tends to +/- [tex]\infty[/tex] at +/- pi/2

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I think I have shown that tan(x) has an inverse on this domain by showing it is bijective.

However, I am unsure how to go about showing that arctan(x) is continuous.
