verify the identity:
sec(beta)+ tan (beta)= cos(beta)/ 1-sin(beta)

  • trig -

    The left side can be rewritten
    = (1 + sin theta]/cos theta

    Crossmultiply

    cos^2 theta = 1 - sin^2 theta

    That is an identity

    How would you establish this identity: (1+sec(beta))/(sec(beta))=(sin^2(beta))/(1-cos(beta)) on the right, sin^2 = 1-cos^2, that factor to 1-cos * `1+cos, then the denominator makes the entire right side 1+cosB which is 1+1/sec which …
