can i use factoring to simplify this trig identity?
the problem is sinx + cotx * cosx i know the answer is cscx and i know how to get it but i want to know if i can do factoring to get it bc i tried to but it wont give me the answer .
this is the step i went through:
1) sinx + cotx * cosx turns into sinx +(cosx/sinx)*cosx
2) i try to factor out sinx so that i would get sinx(1+ cosx * cosx)
3) that left me with sinx(1+cos^(2) x) that's where i im lost can anyone enlighten me plz
