Question:

$5 \tan ^{-1} x+3 \cot ^{-1} x=2 \pi$

Solution:

$5 \tan ^{-1} x+3 \cot ^{-1} x=2 \pi$

$\Rightarrow 5 \tan ^{-1} x+3\left(\frac{\pi}{2}-\tan ^{-1} x\right)=2 \pi$                 $\left[\because \cot ^{-1} x=\frac{\pi}{2}-\tan ^{-1} x\right]$

$\Rightarrow 5 \tan ^{-1} x+\frac{3 \pi}{2}-3 \tan ^{-1} x=2 \pi$

$\Rightarrow 2 \tan ^{-1} x=\frac{\pi}{2}$

$\Rightarrow \tan ^{-1} x=\frac{\pi}{4}$

$\Rightarrow x=\tan \frac{\pi}{4}=1$
