Verify that tan^2(x)+6=sec^2(x)+5

Anonymous
Rewrite equation:
tan^2(x)+6=sec^2(x)+5
65=sec^2(x)tan^2(x)
sec^2(x)tan^2(x)=1
Now you must verify that:
sec^2(x)tan^2(x)=1
tan(x)=sin(x)/cos(x)
tan(x)=sin(x)*sec(x)
tan^2(x)=sin^2(x)*sec^2(x)
sec^2(x)tan^2(x)=
sec^2(x)sin^2(x)*sec^2(x)=
sec^2(x)*[1sin^2(x)]
sin^2(x)+cos^2(x)=1
cos^2(x)=1sin^2(x)
sec^2(x)*[1sin^2(x)]=
sec^2(x)*cos^2(x)
sec(x)=1/cos(x)
sec^2(x)=1/cos^2(x)
sec^2(x)*cos^2(x)=
[1/cos^2(x)]*cos^2(x)=1

So I am suppose to evaulate this problem y=tan^4(2x) and I am confused. my friend did this : 3 tan ^4 (2x) d sec^ 2x (2x)= 6 tan ^4 (2x) d sec^2 (2x) She says it's right but what confuses me is she deriving the 4 and made it a three?
