Verify the given equations:

____1______ + ____1_______ = -2 tanθ

tanθ – secθ tanθ + secθ

1 – sinθ = sec2θ – 2 secθ tan θ + tan2θ

1 + sinθ

Don't try to build up fractional equations using your method, the spacing will not work out

instead do something like this:

1/(tanØ - secØ) + 1/(tanØ + secØ) = -2tanØ

LS = (tanØ + secØ + tanØ - secØ)/(tan2 Ø - sec^2Ø)

= 2tanØ/(sec^2 Ø -1 - sec^2 Ø)

= 2tanØ/-1 = -2tanØ

= RS

PLease retype your 2nd equation using the method I suggested.
