solve secx/2=cosx/2 over the interval[0,2pi) without using a calculator

  • math/trigonometry -

    multipy both sides by cos x/2

    sec cos=cos^2
    1=cos^2
    cos x/2= +-1

    how do i simplify (secx - cosx) / sinx? i tried splitting the numerator up so that i had (secx / sinx) - (cosx / sinx) and then i changed sec x to 1/ cosx so that i had ((1/cosx)/ sinx) - (cos x / sinx) after that i get stuck
