Homework Help: Trig

Posted by Andrea on Thursday, February 28, 2008 at 5:01pm.

Verify that each of the following is an identity.

tan^2x-sin^2x=tan^2xsin^2x

I can get it down to cos^2 on the right, but cannot get it to work out on the left.

secx/cosx - tanx/cotx=1

On the left I got down to 1-tan^2, but that clearly doesn't equal 1....

1-2cos^2x/sinxcosx=tanx-cotx

I'm really not sure where to go with this one. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
