I just recently discovered for myself this weird graph, can anyone explain to me what is exactly happening here. I realize there are a couple asymptotes but I am confused on when when y<0 the "legs" of the graph converge on another asymptote it looks like the tan(x) is just repeated but flipped so it goes:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Normal tan(x) look then the second one will be tan(x) with a flip on the y-axis then it goes back to the normal tan(x) graph. Weird. Care to explain what's happens?

P.S sorry about if this is in the wrong section :)
