$\tan{2\theta} \,=\, \dfrac{2\tan{\theta}}{1-\tan^2{\theta}}$

$\dfrac{2\tan{\theta}}{1-\tan^2{\theta}} \,=\, \tan{2\theta}$

It is called tan double angle identity and used as a formula in two cases.

- Tan of double angle is expanded as the quotient of twice the tan function by subtraction of square of tan function from one.
- The quotient of twice the tan function by subtraction of square of tan function from one is simplified as tan of double angle.

The tangent of double angle identity is used to either expand or simplify the double angle functions like $\tan{2A}$, $\tan{2x}$, $\tan{2\alpha}$ and etc. For example,

$(1) \,\,\,\,\,\,$ $\tan{2x} \,=\, \dfrac{2\tan{x}}{1-\tan^2{x}}$

$(2) \,\,\,\,\,\,$ $\tan{2A} \,=\, \dfrac{2\tan{A}}{1-\tan^2{A}}$

$(3) \,\,\,\,\,\,$ $\tan{2\alpha} \,=\, \dfrac{2\tan{\alpha}}{1-\tan^2{\alpha}}$
