prove that tan^2 (x/2)=1cosx/1+cosx

maths 
Reiny,
let A = x/2 , then we are proving
tan^2 A = (1cos(2A))/(1 + cos(2A))
LS = sin^2 A / cos^2 A
RS = (1  (cos^2 A  sin^2 A) )/(1 + cos^2 A  sin^2 A)
= (1cos^2 A + sin^2 A) / (1sin^2 A + cos^2 A)
= (sin^2 A + sin^2 A)/(cos^2 A + cos^2 A)
= 2sin^2 A / (2cos^2 A)
= sin^2 A/cos^2 A
= LS
