Express sec2x in terms of tanx and secx

I know you have to
sec(2x) = 1/cos(2x) = 1/(cos²x - sin²x)
But how do you split that. Like how to simplify that?

  1. divide top and bottom by cos^2 (multiply by sec^2) and you have

    sec^2(x)/(1-tan^2(x))

    how do i simplify (secx - cosx) / sinx? i tried splitting the numerator up so that i had (secx / sinx) - (cosx / sinx) and then i changed sec x to 1/ cosx so that i had ((1/cosx)/ sinx) - (cos x / sinx) after that i get stuck
