The Proof of the Tangent Half-Angle Formula

In this post, we prove the following trigonometric identity: . Proof Consider a semi-circle with “center” and diameter and radius equal to 1 unit as shown below.  If we let , then by the Inscribed Angle Theorem, . Draw perpendicular to as shown in the second figure. We can compute for the sine and cosine […]
