    \[\tan(2x) = -\cot(90 + x -30) \implies -(-\tan(x-30)) = \tan(x - \frac{\pi}{6})\] \[\implies \tan(2x) = \tan(x - \frac{\pi}{3})\]

    General solution is given by: \[\tan ( \theta) = \tan(x)\] then: \[\theta = n \pi + x\]

    so: \[2x = n \pi + ( x - \frac{\pi}{3} ) \implies x = n \pi + \frac{\pi}{3}\]

    \[\tan(2x) = \cot(-x-60) \implies \cot(90 - (x + 150)) \implies \tan(x + 150)\] \[\tan(2x) = \tan(x + 150)\]

    150 is in degrees: \[150^{\circ} = \frac{5 \pi}{6}\]

    and subtract x from both sides: \[x = n \pi + \frac{5 \pi}{6}\]
