Can someone please help me solve the following trig equations please? Thanks

1-tan^2(x)/1+tan^2(x) + cos(x) = 0

(sqrt(3)+1)cos^2(x) - 1 = (sqrt(3)-1)sin(x)cos(x)

Thanks heaps

by inspection, pi is a root to the equation, the other 2 roots are found already; x = {pi/3, pi, 5pi/3}

the graph below confirms it
