And would you care to explain how you would do the inverse of tan(tan(3π/5))?

I would appreciate your help and will post a picture of my arms flexed, or I'll just say thank you if you want that instead.

That interval is just the same as PI/2 < x < PI/2
It's just a different way of wording it...

Other than that, sorry, can't help you
I don't think we learned that, and even if I did, I didn't pay attention in that class (I love math, but pre-calc was just not fun at all).

That doesn't make sense to me though, cause inverse of tan(tan(3π/5)) is supposed to be in a certain quadrant...like 0 to π/2 would be the first quadrant and so forth. But x being between the same number...doesn't really make sense to me.

Sorry, I have no idea
I have always hated Trig... This is no exception
