# Find the period y= 12 \tan x

## Question:

Find the period {eq}y= 12 \tan x {/eq}

## Period of a Trig Function:

The trigonometric function has a particular period and when we are required to find the period of the similar trigonometric functions then we use the formula: {eq}T=\frac{2\pi}{a} {/eq} where a is the coefficient of the argument of the trigonometric function.

We have to find the period of:

{eq}y= 12 \tan x {/eq}

So this is given :

{eq}T=\frac{2\pi}{1}= 2\pi {/eq}
