verify:
tanx secx = -2tanx

• precal -

Can't be verified, since it is a false statement

test for any acute angle,
left side would be always positive, both the tangent and sec are positive.
But the right side is negative, not possible!

1/tanx-secx+ 1/tanx+secx=-2tanx so this is what I did: =tanx+secx+tanx-secx =(sinx/cosx)+ (1/cosx)+(sinx/cosx)-(1/cosx) =sinx/cosx+ sinx /cosx= -2tanxI but I know this can't be correct because what I did doesn't end as a negatvie:( …

secx/secx-tanx=sec^2x+ secx+tanx

I can't find the integral for (tanx)^(6)*(secx)^(2) I tried splitting up tanx into (tanx)^2*(tanx)^4 and let the latter equal (secx)^2 - 1. Please help, thanks!
7. ### Trig

Verify the identity. 1/(tanx-secx) + 1/(tanx+secx) = -2tanx
8. ### Trig

Verify the identity. (secx + tanx)/(secx - tanx) = (1 + 2sinx + sin(^2)x)/cos(^2)x
9. ### Gr 11 Functions

Simplify (1+tanx)^2 The answer is (1-sinx)(1+sinx) Here's what I do: 1 + 2tanx + tan^2x When I simplify it becomes 1 + 2(sinx/cosx) + (1+secx)(1-secx) What am I doing wrong?
10. ### Math

Evaluate the integral of (secx)^2 * (tanx)^3 *dx I started out with letting u=secx and du=secx*tanx*dx , but then I am kind of stuck because I don't know how to factor out just secx*tanx?
