Hint:
When there is a mixture of tan, sin and cos, use identities to convert everything into sin and cos, and simplify. This usually works, especially if the righthand side is in sin and cosine.
For your information,
tan(x)=sin(x)/cos(x)
cot(x)=cos(x)/sin(x)

How do I solve this? My work has led me to a dead end. tan(45x) + cot(45x) =4 my work: (tan45  tanx)/(1+ tan45tanx) + (cot45  cotx)/(1 + cot45cotx) = 4 (1tanx)/(1+tanx) + (1cotx)/(1+cotx) = 4 Then I found a common denominator,

it says to verify the following identity, working only on one side: cotx+tanx=cscx*secx Work the left side. cot x + tan x = cos x/sin x + sin x/cos x = (cos^2 x +sin^2x)/(sin x cos x) = 1/(sin x cos x) = 1/sin x * 1/cos x You're almost …
