Find the value of tan 30 without using a calculator

We need to find the value of tan 30 without using a calculator.

Solution

We can also represent the tangent function as the ratio of the sine function and cosine function.

∴ Tan α = sin α/cos α

So, tan 30 degrees we can write as;

Tan 30°=sin 30°/cos 30°

We know,

Sin 30° = 1/2 & Cos 30° = √3/2

∴ Tan 30° = (1/2) /(√3/2)

Tan 30° = 1/√3

Hence, the value of Tan 30 degrees is 1/√3
