I need HELP Verify the identity
Cot3X/CSCX=cosX(csc2X1)

testing if x = 20ยบ
LS = cot60/csc20
= sin20/tan60 = .1975
RS = cos20(1/sin40  1)
= .5222
Your equation is NOT an identity.
A check should always be your first step when proving complicatedlooking trig "identities".

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 …
