Verify the given equations:
____1______ + ____1_______ = -2 tanθ
tanθ – secθ tanθ + secθ


1 – sinθ = sec2θ – 2 secθ tan θ + tan2θ
1 + sinθ

  • Trig -

    Don't try to build up fractional equations using your method, the spacing will not work out

    instead do something like this:

    1/(tanØ - secØ) + 1/(tanØ + secØ) = -2tanØ

    LS = (tanØ + secØ + tanØ - secØ)/(tan2 Ø - sec^2Ø)
    = 2tanØ/(sec^2 Ø -1 - sec^2 Ø)
    = 2tanØ/-1 = -2tanØ
    = RS

    PLease retype your 2nd equation using the method I suggested.
