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

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
