**Reiny**, Thursday, October 4, 2012 at 8:36amAre we solving for Ø ?

tan^2 Ø +6 = sec^2 Ø + 5

sin^2 Ø/cos^2 Ø + 6 = 1/cos^2 Ø + 5

times cos^2 Ø

sin^2 Ø + 6cos^2 Ø = 1 + 5 cos^2 Ø

sin^2 Ø + cos^2 Ø = 1

1 = 1

ahh, it was an identity, thus true for all values of Ø, except Ø = 90° , 270° , 450° ..... or 90° + 180k , where k is an integer.
