You dont define the terms you are using. But, if by theta you mean the angle, and by tan you mean the tangent of the angle, the answer you are looking for is infinity. At the angle approaches 90 degrees (starting at zero) the numerator (in the tangent) increases to infinity and the denominator moves toward zero. At a denominator of zero the fraction is infinite.

Tan (theta) gives you the slope of a line through the angle.,

As theta goes from 0 to 90, a line at that angle would go from horizontal to verticle,

so the value of tan diverges to infinity.

Go to your calculator and calculate tan(85), tan(86), tan(87), etc for numbers closer and closer to 90 degrees.
