$\tan{3\theta} \,=\, \dfrac{3\tan{\theta}-\tan^3{\theta}}{1-3\tan^2{\theta}}$

$\dfrac{3\tan{\theta}-\tan^3{\theta}}{1-3\tan^2{\theta}} \,=\, \tan{3\theta}$

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

- Tan of triple angle is expanded as the quotient of subtraction of tan cubed of angle from three times tan of angle by subtraction of three times tan squared of angle from one.
- The quotient of subtraction of tan cubed of angle from three times tan of angle by subtraction of three times tan squared of angle from one is simplified as tan of triple angle.

The tangent of triple angle identity is used to either expand or simplify the triple angle tan functions like $\tan{3A}$, $\tan{3x}$, $\tan{3\alpha}$ and etc. For example,

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

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

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