Prove Identity: (1cos2x/ tan x) = sin2x

I think the parentheses are in the wrong place. It should probably read:
(1cos2x)/tan x = sin2x
Again, split everything into sin and cos, and don't forget the identities:
cos(2x)=cos²(x)sin²(x)
sin(2x)=2sin(x)cos(x)
(1cos(2x))/tan(x)
=(1(cos²(x)sin²(x))*(cos(x)/sin(x))
=(1(12sin²(x))*cos(x)/sin(x)
=2sin²(x)*cos(x)/sin(x)
=2sin(x)cos(x)
=sin(2x)

Where do I start to prove this identity: sinx/cosx= 1cos2x/sin2x please help!! Hint: Fractions are evil. Get rid of them. Well, cos2x = cos 2 x  sin 2 x, so 1coscx = 1  cos 2 x  sin 2 x = 1  cos 2 x + sin 2 x You should be able …

Solve identity, (1sin2x)/cos2x = cos2x/(1+sin2x) I tried starting from the right side, RS: =(cos²xsin²x)/(1+2sinxcosx) =(cos²x(1cos²x))/(1+2sinxcosx) and the right side just goes in circle. May I get a hint to start off?
