Find a numerical value of one trigonometric function of x if
tanx/cotx  secx/cosx = 2/cscx
a) cscx=1
b) sinx=1/2
c)cscx=1
d)sinx=1/2

(sinx/cosx)/(cosx/sinx)  (1/cosx)/cosx = 2sinx
(sin^2 x)/(cos^2 x)  1/cos^2 x = 2sinx
(sin^2 x  1)/cos^2 x = 2sinx
(sin^2 x  1)/(1  sin^2 x) = 2sinx
1 = 2sinx
sinx = 1/2

express this in sinx (1/ cscx + cotx )+ (1/cscx cotx) i got 2sinx is that right?

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 …

I can't seem to prove these trig identities and would really appreciate help: 1. cosx + 1/sin^3x = cscx/1  cosx I changed the 1: cosx/sin^3x + sin^3x/sin^3x = cscx/1cosx Simplified: cosx + sin^3x/sin^3x = cscx/1cosx I don't know …
