Simplify tan(arccos(x))

Draw a triangle in the plane with vertices , , and the origin. Then is the angle between the positive x-axis and the ray beginning at the origin and passing through . Therefore, is .
Since both terms are perfect squares, factor using the difference of squares formula, where and .
