How do you do that? I take you cant judge knock out cosx and cosy from the top and bottom due to separate terms, as that'd give (sinxsiny)/(sinx + siny)

You have a fraction with cos()*sin(), sin()*sin() and cos()*cos() terms on both the numerator and denominator. Think what identity transformation you can do to the fraction. Dividing sin() by cos() gives you tan(), so think along those lines.
