Prove that
tanx+cotx=2sec(2x)

Thank you! :)

• Trigonometry -

LS = sinx/cosx + cosx/sinx
= (sin^2 x + cos^2 x)/sinxcosx
= 1/(sinxcosx)
= 2/(2sinxcosx)
= 2/sin (2x)
= 2csc (2x)

Your RS = 2sec(2x) which is incorrect

Did you have a typo?

Yes I had a typo. Thank you!!

(I don't know how to respond to answers besides this....)
