(1 + sinØ + cosØ)/(1 - sinØ + cosØ)

multiply both the numerator and denominator by (1-sinφ+cosφ) and simplify:

((1+cosφ)^2-sin&hi;^2)/(1-sinφ+cosφ)^2

=2cosφ(1+cosφ)/[2(1-sinφ)(1+cosφ)]

=2cosφ/[2(1-sinφ)]

=cosφ/(1-sinφ)

Now multiply top and bottom by (1+sinφ)

cosφ(1+sinφ)/(1-sin²φ)

=cosφ(1+sinφ)/cos²φ

=(1+sinφ)/cosφ
