## Derivative of Tangent

The derivative of the tangent function (tan(x)) is the secant squared function (sec^2(x)). In mathematical notation, it can be represented as: d/dx(tan(x)) = sec^2(x) This means that if you have a function y = tan(x), the rate at which y changes with respect to x (its derivative) is given by sec^2(x). In simpler terms, when … Read more
