    Graphing tangent

    Hello,

    can someon please help me graph tangent?

    Y=1/2tan(pi(x)-pi)

    this is what I got for the interval and the period, but I have a feeling it might be wrong:

    period = 1
    interval = (-1/2,1/2)

    Is this the function you're trying to graph?

    y=\frac{1}{2}tan(\pi x-\pi)

    ??

    If so, we have y=\frac{1}{2}tan(\pi(x-1))

    So the graph will be 1 unit to the right of the standard graph.

    The interval will be giving by solving the inequality:

    -\frac{\pi}{2} \leq \pi x+ \pi \leq \frac{\pi}{2}
