Reduce (csc^2 x  sec^2 X) to an expression containing only tan x.
(is this correct?)
csc x = 1/sin x
sec x = 1/cos x
tan x = 1/cot x
sin^2 x + cos^2 x = 1
1 + cot^2 x = csc^2 x
tan^2 x + 1 = sec^2 x
csc^2 x  sec^2 x
= 1 + cot^2 x  (1 + tan^2 x)
= cot^2 x  tan^2 x
= (1/tan^2 x)  tan^2 x

Hello all, In our math class, we are practicing the trigonometric identities (i.e., sin^2(x)+cos^2(x)=1 or cot(x)=cos(x)/sin(x). Now, we are working on proofs that two sides of an equation are equal (for example, sin(x)*csc(x)=1; sin(x)csc(x)=sin(x)/sin(x)=1; …
