dc.description I wish to thank Professor A. Shenitzer (York University, Canada) and Professor R. Jean (Universite du Quebec a Rimouski, Canada) for kindly reading this paper and making many valuable suggestions. This work has been supported by the Peruvian Council of Science and Technology (CONCYTEC).
dc.description.abstract By investigating the pattern exhibited by tan (89-99…9°) we develop a rule of thumb. We then show how such asymptotic results follow from Taylor’s theorem (with remainder). Additional comments regarding error bounds and pedagogy are also made. © 1990 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
