hello, can someone please show me how the roots of z tan z = k , where k > 0 are real is solved.

what i have done; z tan z =

by Euler equations

would appreciate some help solving this thanks guys

The first thing I would do is get the denominator real by multiplying numerator and denominator by the conjugate, -i (note that e

^{iz}+ e[sup]-iz[/itex]**is**a real number because it is equal to its conjugate).
