Shouldn't the solutions also include pie/2 and 3pie/2?Answer by jim_thompson5910(28598)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Since this means that which is undefined (since you CANNOT divide by zero). The same applies when So because these values make the tangent function undefined, this means that they are NOT part of the domain. So this means that they are NOT part of the solution set (since everything in the solution set must be in the domain)
