We know that \tan x = \frac{\sin x}{\cos x} .

Using trigonometric identity\sin^2 x + \cos^2 x = 1 , we can write \sin^2 x = 1 - \cos^2 x .

Therefore,\tan x = \frac{\sin x}{\cos x} = \frac{\sqrt{1-\cos^2 x}}{\cos x} .

Thus,\boxed{\tan x = \sqrt{\frac{1-\cos^2 x}{\cos^2 x}}} is \tan x in terms of \cos x .

Using trigonometric identity

Therefore,

Thus,
