You should use the following trigonometric identities to solve the equation `1 + sin 2x = 3 cos 2x`  such that:

sin 2x = (2 tan ((2x)/2))/(1 + tan^2((2x)/2))

`sin 2x = (2 tan x)/(1 + tan^2 x)`

`cos2x = (1- tan^2 x)/(1 + tan^2 x)`

`1 + (2 tan x)/(1 + tan^2 x) = 3(1 - tan^2 x)/(1 + tan^2 x)`

Moving the terms to one side yields:

`1 + (2 tan x)/(1 + tan^2 x)- 3(1 -...
