Hi this appeared on my differentiation homework. for 0<x< π/2 Prove 1/2 tan (x/2) + 1/ (2^2) tan (x/ (2^2)) + ..... 1/ (2^n) tan (x/ (2^n)) = 1/ (2^n) cot (x/ (2^n)) - cot x. Anyone knows how to solve it?

Some brackets to avoid ambiguity would be nice... Is it or ?
Hi it is the first one....
Hi it is ... Thanks!
Thanks man that's brilliant! Originally Posted by ibdutt

I am sorry could you elaborate further? I don't get the eqn... Thanks! Originally Posted by Idea Another idea. Prove the following by an easy induction Then take ln of both sides and differentiate
The left side is a product
Ummgh how did you arrive at this equation? I am really lost.
You have to prove this formula by induction for n=1
