  1. let arctan((x+1)/(x-1)) = A or tanA = (x+1)/(x-1)
    let arctan((x-1)/x) = B or tanB = (x-1)/x

    then Tan(Arctan x+1/x-1+Arctan x-1/x)
    = tan(A+B)
    = (tanA + tanB)/(1-tanAtanB)
    = [ (x+1)/(x-1) + (x-1)/x ] / [1 - (x+1)/(x-1)(x-1)/x ]
    = ....
    = (2x^2 - x + 1)/(1-x)

    check my algebra
