Tan 195 Degrees
The value of tan 195 degrees is 0.2679491. . .. Tan 195 degrees in radians is written as tan (195° × π/180°), i.e., tan (13π/12) or tan (3.403392. . .). In this article, we will discuss the methods to find the value of tan 195 degrees with examples.
 Tan 195°: 2  √3
 Tan 195° in decimal: 0.2679491. . .
 Tan (195 degrees): 0.2679491. . . or 2 + √3
 Tan 195° in radians: tan (13π/12) or tan (3.4033920 . . .)
What is the Value of Tan 195 Degrees?
The value of tan 195 degrees in decimal is 0.267949192. . .. Tan 195 degrees can also be expressed using the equivalent of the given angle (195 degrees) in radians (3.40339 . . .)
We know, using degree to radian conversion, θ in radians = θ in degrees × (pi/180°)
⇒ 195 degrees = 195° × (π/180°) rad = 13π/12 or 3.4033 . . .
∴ tan 195° = tan(3.4033) = 2  √3 or 0.2679491. . .
Explanation:
For tan 195 degrees, the angle 195° lies between 180° and 270° (Third Quadrant). Since tangent function is positive in the third quadrant, thus tan 195° value = 2  √3 or 0.2679491. . .
Since the tangent function is a periodic function, we can represent tan 195° as, tan 195 degrees = tan(195° + n × 180°), n ∈ Z.
⇒ tan 195° = tan 375° = tan 555°, and so on.
Note: Since, tangent is an odd function, the value of tan(195°) = tan(195°).

 cot(90°  195°) = cot(105°)
 cot(90° + 195°) = cot 285°
 tan (180°  195°) = tan(15°)
Tan 195 Degrees Using Unit Circle
To find the value of tan 195 degrees using the unit circle:
 Rotate ‘r’ anticlockwise to form 195° angle with the positive xaxis.
 The tan of 195 degrees equals the ycoordinate(0.2588) divided by xcoordinate(0.9659) of the point of intersection (0.9659, 0.2588) of unit circle and r.
Hence the value of tan 195° = y/x = 0.2679 (approx).
