Inverse trigonometric functions

How to find the value of
arctan(2 sin (pi/3))
without using calculator or sketching a triangle. It is like taking u=something and then evaluating.


the solution relies on the fact that you should know the ratio of sides of the 30,60 90 degree triangle, and knowing that Pi/3 = 60 and pi/6 = 30º

in pi/3 = √3 /2 so 2 sin pi/3 = √3 or √3 /1

now what is the angle so that tan(angle) = √3 ???
must be 60º or in radians pi/3

    Arrange these in order from least to greatest: arctan(-sqrt3), arctan 0, arctan(1/2) So far I got the first two values, arctan(-sqrt3), and that's 150 degrees. Arctan 0 would be zero degrees. I'll use just one answer for now, but

    sin(arctan(-4/3) okay so i made arctan(-4/3) = x so im solving for sin(x) and x= arctan(-4/3) so then tanx = -4/3 and now im stuck i don't know what to do after that

    Let f be a function defined by f(x)= arctan x/2 + arctan x. the value of f'(0) is? It's 3/2 but I am not very clear on how to obtain the answer. I changed arctan x/2 into dy/dx=(4-2x)/(4sqrt(4+x^2)) but that's as far as I got.
