$\log\tan 1^0\cdot\log\tan 2^0\log\tan 3^0\cdot\cdot\cdot\log\tan43^0\cdot\log\tan44^0\cdot\log\tan45^0\cdot\cdot\cdot\log\tan 58^0\cdot\log\tan 59^0\cdot\log\tan 60^0=0$

Because $\log\tan45^0=\log 1=0$

$\log\tan 1^0\cdot\log\tan 2^0\log\tan 3^0\cdot\cdot\cdot\log\tan43^0\cdot\log\tan44^0\cdot0\cdot\cdot\cdot\log\tan 58^0\cdot\log\tan 59^0\cdot\log\tan 60^0=0$
