We know that

\\ \sin A + \sin B = 2\sin\frac{A+B}{2}\cos\frac{A-B}{2}\\and\\ \\ \cos A + \cos B = 2\cos\frac{A+B}{2}\cos\frac{A-B}{2} \\

We use these identities

\\ \sin5x + \sin3x = 2\sin4x\cos x\\ \cos5 x + \cos 3x = 2\cos4x\cos x \\ \\ \frac{\sin5x + \sin3x}{\cos5 x + \cos 3x} = \frac{ 2\sin4x\cos x}{2\cos4x\cos x} = \frac{\sin4x}{\cos 4x} = \tan 4x
