csc(x)+sec(x)/sin(x)+cos(x)=cot(x)+tan(x)

the left side of the equation is all one term.

(csc(x)+sec(x))/(sin(x)+cos(x))=cot(x)+tan(x)

Left hand side

(csc(x)+sec(x))/(sin(x)+cos(x))

=(1/sin(x)+1/(cos(x))/(sin(x)+cos(x))

=((cos(x)+sin(x))/(sin(x)cos(x))/(sin(x)+cos(x))

=1/(sin(x)cos(x))

Right hand side:

cot(x)+tan(x)

=cos(x)/sin(x) + sin(x)/cos(x)

=(cos²(x) + sin²(x))/(sin(x)+cos(x))

=1/(sin(x)+cos(x))

So the identity is verified.
