Graph `y=tan(x-pi/4) ` :

This is the graph of y=tan(x) translated right `pi/4 ` units.

Thus the vertical asymptotes will be at `x=-pi/4+npi, n in ZZ ` (n an integer; i.e. the vertical asymptotes will occur at ` ``x=...,(-5pi)/4,-pi/4,(3pi)/4,... ` )

The x-intercepts will occur at `x=pi/4+npi,n in ZZ ` i.e. ` ``x=...,(-3pi)/4,pi/4,(5pi)/4,... `

The y-intercept is `y=tan(0-pi/4)=-1 `

There are no maximums or minimums.

The graph:

** The horizontal tick marks are in increments of `pi/4 ` .**
