  1. I don't know how many trig ratios of half-angles you have developed or know but here is a page where many of them are done.

    about 2/3 of the way down you should find
    tan [(A+B)/2) = (sinA +sinB)/(cosA + cosB)
    = x/y

  3. I think you should use the Power Reducing or Half Angle Formula in Trigonometry.
