Precalculus Follow Up 2
Oh now I see your point. I am sorry I should have stated this before. How do I verify that tan^2(theta)/Sec(theta)-1 is somehow the same as 1+cos(theta)/Cos(Theta)?

Precalculus Follow Up
1+ cos(theta)/Cos(theta) = tan^2(theta)/sec(theta)-1 I am having trouble understanding how this is verified by the previous answer. I am sorry I just want to understand this because I didn't see a tan^2 anywhere :/. Step by step how did you verify the above identity? Please?
