    At the point where two curves intersect, what can you say about the value of each curve at that point?

    Whenthey intersect they go through the same point ie the x and y coords are the same.

    Try putting the two equations for y equal to each other.

    If you had  \tan y = \sqrt 3 could you solve it? (Standard angle)

    Simultaneous equations, Tan(x+pi/5) = sqrt(3) (so that the equation is equal to the line)
    Solve for x + pi/5 then solve for x.

    Tan (x+pi/5) = root 3

    Tan^-1 (root 3) = x + pi/5
    X = answer - (pi/5)
    Y = root 3

    Ok I'll answer it for you: Where two curves intersect, they have the same value.

    This means curve one equals curve two. (hint hint)
