1)A piano tuner uses a tuning fork. If middle C has a frequency of 264 vibrations per second, write an equation in the form d=sinw(t) for the simple harmonic motion.

2) Verify the identity
tan^2X-cot^2X/tanX+cotX=tanX-cotX

I'm not completely sure on the first one, but I think it looks like
d=sin(264*t) Check your text for a worked example.
The second one is algebra.
[(tanX)^2-(cotX)^2]/[tanX+cotX]=tanX-cotX
or
[(tanX-cotX)(tanX+cotX)]/[tanX+cotX]=tanX-cotX
Can you finish it?

How do I solve this? My work has led me to a dead end. tan(45-x) + cot(45-x) =4 my work: (tan45 - tanx)/(1+ tan45tanx) + (cot45 - cotx)/(1 + cot45cotx) = 4 (1-tanx)/(1+tanx) + (1-cotx)/(1+cotx) = 4 Then I found a common denominator,
