# Prove That:Tan 8x − Tan 6x − Tan 2x = Tan 8x Tan 6x Tan 2x - Mathematics

Short Note

Prove that:
tan 8x − tan 6x − tan 2x = tan 8x tan 6x tan 2x

#### Solution

We know that 8x = 6x + 2x
Therefore,
$\tan\left( 8x \right) = \tan\left( 6x + 2x \right)$
$\Rightarrow \tan\left( 8x \right) = \frac{\tan6x + \tan2x}{1 - \tan6x \tan2x}$
$\Rightarrow \tan8x - \tan8x \tan6x \tan2x = \tan6x + \tan2x$
$\Rightarrow \tan8x - \tan6x - \tan2x = \tan8x \tan6x \tan2x$
Hence proved.
