    \[\sqrt 3 \tan (2x) = 0\] first step divide both sides by \(\sqrt{3}\) what do you get?

    so tan2x=-1/sqrt(3)

    nope. \[\tan (2x) =\frac {0}{\sqrt3}\] now simplify this

    because there was a 2 between the tan and the x, which compresses the tan graph

    You started with 2x= -pi/6 if we call 2x theta, we have 2 solutions: |dw:1342706814544:dw| and x is 5pi/12 and 11pi/12 now add pi to each value to get the other 2 solutions or , noting that 2x+pi divided by 2 is x+pi/2 , add multiplies of pi/2 to get all four solutions starting with -pi/12 (which is 11pi/12 in the interval [0, 2pi] )
