# OCR A-level Maths Tangent

This page covers the following topics:

1. Tangent

2. Tangent graphs and transformations

Tangent of an angle is a ratio between the side opposite to the angle and the side adjacent to the angle.

The diagram shows a tangent graph.

# 1

Find tanB if a = 0.2 and b = 0.5.

# 2

What is the period (size of one wave) of a tangent graph?

# 3

Write down the x coordinate of point A on the tangent graph

# 4

Sketch the graph of y = tan(x) + 2.

# 5

Find b if tanB = 2.7 and a = 10.
