Use the fundamental identities to simplify the expression.
csc Q / sec Q
so this would be 1/sinx / 1/cosx
and then 1/sinx times cosx/1 = sin x cosx
Is this correct so far? If it is I do not know what to do next.

Whenever you post an equation involving fractions or squareroots, use parentheses to enclose the numerator, the denominator, or the squareroot, whichever the case may be.
This will help you avoid ambiguities which could lead to mistakes in your calculations.
csc Q / sec Q
=(csc Q) / (sec Q)
=(1/sin Q) / (1/ cosQ)
=(1/sin Q) * cos Q
= (cos Q) / (sin Q)
= ?
