simplify: (sinx/cosx)1/(cosx/sinx)1

I too am slightly frustrated, since I can't tell which order of operation to follow with your placement of brackets
is it sinx/cosx  [1/(sinx/cosx)]  1 ??
if so, you have
tanx  1/cotx  1
= tanx  tanx  1
= 1 
(sinx/cosx1)/ (cosx/sinx1)

(tan x 1) / (1/tan x  1)
(tan^2 x  tan x) / (1  tan x)
tan x (tan x  1)/(1  tan x)
tan x
