Consider tan-11/5 as x

Use tan(A-B) to simplify the expression.

tan2x= 2 tanx/(1-tan2x)

and tan(tan-1x)=x
Use the mentioned relations to find evaluate the expression.

Consider tan-1(-2) as x
So, tanx=-2
So, find the value of sin(pi-x) and cos(pi-x) using the relationtan(pi-x)=2/1
sin(pi-x) and cos(pi-x) are infact equal to sinx and -cos x using the concepts of unit circle which should give you the value of x in terms of sin-1 and cos-1 of some numerical values which are to be used further in evaluating the expression.
cos[pi/3 + tan-1(-2)] can be simplified with cos(A-B) identity.

Using the derived relations for x in terms of sin-1and cos-1will give you the answer to the question.

P.S. Please post one question per post.
