Slope and Tan(angle).

  • #1
my question is that
slope=tan(angle)
slope can be 1,2,3,..,9,0
but tan(angle) can be 0,1 or b/w the intervals or infinity.
so how they can be equal.

The slope of a straight line can be any real number.

Who says that [itex]0 \le tan \enspace \alpha \le 1 [/tex] ?

That's only true for [itex]0^\circ \le \alpha \le 45 ^\circ [/tex]

Try these on your calculator (in degree mode):
TAN 85
TAN 100

It seems that the OP is confused about many things. It's hard to even know where to start with this one. :eek:
