Homework Help: trigonometry

Posted by v on Tuesday, December 4, 2012 at 12:19am.

how do i simplify (secx - cosx) / sinx?

i tried splitting the numerator up so that i had (secx / sinx) - (cosx / sinx)

and then i changed sec x to 1/ cosx so that i had

((1/cosx)/ sinx) - (cos x / sinx)

after that i get stuck
