Applying the formlua:

\tan^{-1}x + \tan^{-1}y = \tan^{-1} \frac{x+y}{1-xy}    on two parts.

we will have,

=\tan^{-1}\left (\frac{\frac{1}{5}+ \frac{1}{7}}{1- \frac{1}{5}\times \frac{1}{7}} \right ) + \tan^{-1}\left (\frac{\frac{1}{3}+ \frac{1}{8}}{1- \frac{1}{3}\times \frac{1}{8}} \right )

= \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{7+5}{35-1} \right ) + \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{8+3}{24-1} \right )

= \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{12}{34} \right ) + \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{11}{23} \right )

= \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{6}{17} \right ) + \tan^{-1} \left ( \frac{11}{23} \right )

 = \tan^{-1}\left [ \frac{\frac{6}{17}+\frac{11}{23}}{1-\frac{6}{17}\times\frac{11}{23}} \right ]

 = \tan^{-1}\left [ \frac{325}{325} \right ] = \tan^{-1} 1

=\frac{\pi}{4}

Hence it s equal to R.H.S
