1. (sinx/cscx)+(cosx/secx)=1
2. (1/sinxcosx)(cosx/sinx)=tanx
3. (1/1+cos s)=csc^2 scsc s cot s
4. (secx/secxtanx)=sec^2x+secxtanx
5. (cosx/secx1)(cosx/tan^2x)=cot^2x

sinx/cscx is the same thing as sin^2 x
cosx/secx is the same thing as cos^2 x
What you you know about the sum of sin^2 and cos^2 ?
Try proving the other identities yourself, writing tan, csc and sec in terms of sin and cos.

( tanx/1cotx )+ (cotx/1tanx)= (1+secxcscx) Good one! Generally these are done by changing everything to sines and cosines, unless you see some obvious identities. Also generally, it is best to start with the more complicated side …

My previous question: Verify that (secx/sinx)*(cotx/cscx)=cscx is an identity. (secx/sinx)*(cotx/cscx) = (secx/cscx)(cotx/sinx) = (sinx/cosx)*cotx*(1/sinx) "The last steps should be obvious" Not to me. I can convert (sinx/cosx) to …
