Trigo help!

posted by .

Ok, i've tried this question, and it brings me to no answers. Please help!

Prove the following:
secY(1+tanY)=6cosecY

my workings:
LeftHandSide:
secY + tanY/cosY
= 1/cosY + sinY/cos^2Y
=(cosY+sinY)/cos^2Y
= ???
How should i attempt this question?? Am i even on the right track? Please help, much appreciated!

    When I come across an unusual trig identity to prove, the first thing I do is try some arbitrary angle.
    Since it is an Identity it should be true for any angle
    e.g. Y = 30ยบ
    LS = sec30(1+tan30) = appr. 1.821
    RS = 6csc30 = 12

    No wonder you can't prove it, it is not true !
