**MathMate**, Sunday, January 2, 2011 at 5:24pmUse the following identities to express everything in sin(x), cos(x), tan(x) and cot(x):

sec(x)=1/cos(x)

csc(x)=1/sin(x)

Unless there is a typo on the right-hand-side, I find the given*identity*not true.

**briana**, Sunday, January 2, 2011 at 6:44pmi put it in my graphing calculator, though, and they graph the same function

**MathMate**, Sunday, January 2, 2011 at 8:13pmThis is why I suspected there is a typo.

The left-hand-side evaluates to -2csc(x).

The right-hand-side, 2*csc(x).

I suggest you recheck the expressions posted.

Here's a plot of each side of the identity*as posted*.
