sec^4(x)  tan^4(x) =
= (1 + tan^2(x))^2  tan^4(x)
= 1 + 2tan^2(x) + tan^4(x)  tan^4(x)
= 1 + 2tan^2(x)

trig...again
gahh i cant figure this one out either. you have you verify the identity only using one side of the equation: sec^2x*sin^2x+sec^2x=1 this identity cannot possible be true. on the left side you are adding 2 squared quantities, how …
