Prove the identit: cosxcotx+sinx=cscx

  • Pre-Calc/Math -

    1) rewrite cosx (cosx/sinx) + sinx = csc x

    2) cosx^2/sinx + sinx = csc x

    3) multiply sinx by (sinx/sinx) to get same denominator

    this gives you cosx^2/sinx + sinx^2/sinx = cscx

    4) combine your fractions

    (cosx^2 + sinx^2)/sinx = cscx

    5) rewrite numerator

    1/sinx= csc x

    and there you go it is proven (you have to know your trig identity to do this so look them up if you don't know them)

    no problem lol this one almost had me stump for alittle
