Trig check my work please?

tan(X+30)tan(30x)=2cos2x1 / (2cos2x+1)
i just did
(tanx)(tanx)=sin^2x/cos^2x would that work?

Trig check my work please? 
Reiny
no, just test it for some value of x
LS is not equal to your RS

Carry, where are you getting these,
even though I enjoy doing them, they are getting to me, lol
recall tan(A+B) = (tanA + tanB)/(1  tanAtanB)
so LS
= (tanx + tan30)/1tanxtan30)*(tan30tanx)/(1+tanxtan30)
= (tan^2 30  tan^2 x)/(1  (tan^x)(tan^2 30))
now tan^2 30º = 1/3
so the above
= (1/3  tan^2 x)/(1  (1/3)tan^2 x)
multiply top and bottom by 3 to get
(1  3tan^2 x)/(3  tan^2 x)
RS = (2cos(2x)  1)/(2cos(2x) + 1)
= (2(cos^2x  sin^2x)  1)/(2(cos^2xsin^2x) + 1)
remember 1 = sin^2x + cos^2x , so we get
(2cos^2x  2sin^x  sin^2x  cos^2x)/(2cos^2x  2sin^2x + sin^2x + cos^2x)
= (cos^2x  3sin^2x)/(3cos^2x  sin^2x)
divide top and bottom by cos^x to get
(1  3tan^2x)/(3  tan^2x)
ok, no more!!!!

How do I solve this? My work has led me to a dead end. tan(45x) + cot(45x) =4 my work: (tan45  tanx)/(1+ tan45tanx) + (cot45  cotx)/(1 + cot45cotx) = 4 (1tanx)/(1+tanx) + (1cotx)/(1+cotx) = 4 Then I found a common denominator,
