A.Verify the identity.
B.Determine if the identity is true for the given value of x. Explain.

[cot(x) – 1] / [cot(x) + 1] = [1 – tan(x)] / [1 + tan(x)], x = π/4

I solved A and I believe it's true; however, I need help with B.

  • Pre-Calculus -

    Put in for x the value.
    [cot(x) – 1] / [cot(x) + 1] = [1 – tan(x)] / [1 + tan(x)]
    or
    [cot(PI/4) – 1] / [cot(PI/4) + 1] = [1 – tan(PI/4)] / [1 + tan(PI/4)]

    or
    (1-1)/2=?=(1-1)/(1+1)
    0=0
