Prove each idenity.

1+1/tan^2x=1/sin^2x

1/cosx-cosx=sinxtanx

1/sin^2x+1/cos^2x=1/sin^2xcos^2x

1/1-cos^2x+/1+cosx=2/sin^2x

and

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

I haven't even gotten 'round to sny of the quedtions because the first one is just so hard. I'm not really sure I'm uderstanding how to use the quotient and pythagorean identities. I'm so confused. I can't make sense of it and I have tried so many different ways. I must have spent over an hour on he first problem and still I can't come up with an answer. I'm just really frustrated; could someone please help me. I'd really appreciate it.
