Prove that the equation is an identity.

sec x/(sec x -tan x)=sec^2 x +sec x tan x

  • Precalculus -

    left side
    (1/cos) /(1/cos -sin/cos)

    1/(1 - sin)

    right side
    1/cos^2 + sin/cos^2

    (1+sin)/(1-sin^2)

    (1+sin) / [(1+sin)(1-sin) ]

    1/(1-sin) remarkable :)

    So I am suppose to evaulate this problem y=tan^4(2x) and I am confused. my friend did this : 3 tan ^4 (2x) d sec^ 2x (2x)= 6 tan ^4 (2x) d sec^2 (2x) She says it's right but what confuses me is she deriving the 4 and made it a three?
