# Pre-Cal

posted by .

I'm trying to do this identities homework and i can't figure this one out.
sec^4x + (tan^2x)(sec^2x)= sec^4x

• Pre-Cal -

There must be a typo somewhere. If you subtract sec^4x from both sides, you have

tan^2x * sec^2x = 0

which is not always true.

Perform the addition or subtraction. tanx - sec^2x/tanx tan^2(x)/tan(x) - sec^2x/tanx = tan^2x sec^2x / tanx then I use the identity 1+tan^2u=sec^2u I do not know what to do at this point.
