sqrt(1+tan x)-sqrt(1+sin x) lim all divided by x^3 x-->0 Use that Sqrt[1+x] = 1+ 1/2 x + 1/2 (-1/2)/2 x^2 + 1/2(-1/2)(-3/2)/6 x^3 + O(x^4) You can thus write the numerator as: 1/2 [tan(x) - sin(x)] - 1/8 [tan^2(x) - sin^2(x)] + 1/16 [tan^3(x) - sin^3(x)] + O(x^4) Note that...

**Trig**

Use the fundamental identities to simplify the expression: cot beta sec beta I used 1+tan^2u=secu since cot is the inverse of tan. I flipped the tangent, then so it was 1+ (1/tan). But the book's answer is the cosecant of beta. Where did this come from??
