If I have , then I have well, tan is equal to 1 in . It's equal to -1 in quadrant 2 and 4. So where n is all reals. but why isn't it also , since tan is negative in the 4th quadrant as well?

Actually it's , and the tangent function is positive in the first and third quadrants. where .
Sorry it my quickness to get the latex correct I wrote the problem out wrong. its supposed to have been TanX+1, not tanx-1
Well to answer your question, both answers are correct. They can be written in a more compact way as where . The period of the tangent function is , not .

Ah yes, I forgot about the periodicity of Tan being different. ok so to provide: Would be a correct answer?
The second of those is redundant, since .
