How do I do these problems?
Verify the identity.
a= alpha, b=beta, t= theta
1. (1 + sin a) (1 - sin a)= cos^2a
2. cos^2b - sin^2b = 2cos^2b - 1
3. sin^2a - sin^4a = cos^2a - cos^4a
4. (csc^2 t / cot t) = csc t sec t
5. (cot^2 t / csc t) = csc t = sin t

Learn your identites well in order to prove these.
1. (1+sina) (1-sina)
= cos^2a (according to identity)
you know that sin^2b = 1-cos^2b, so:
3. sin^2a - sin^4a=
= sin^2a- (sin^2a)(sin^2a)
I hope you can do the rest by yourself ;)
