for all values of X for which of the following is defined, find th value of cot^2(X)- csc^2(X)

asked by matthew
  1. cot^2(X)- csc^2(X)
    =(1/tan(x))2 - (1/sin(x))2
    =(cos(x)2-1)/sin(x)2
    =-sin(x)2/sin(x)2
    =-1

    Hello all, In our math class, we are practicing the trigonometric identities (i.e., sin^2(x)+cos^2(x)=1 or cot(x)=cos(x)/sin(x). Now, we are working on proofs that two sides of an equation are equal (for example, sin(x)*csc(x)=1;

    verify (csc^4-1)/cot^2x=2+cot^2x So this is what I have so far on the left side (csc^2x+1)(cscx+1)(cscx-1)/cot^2x =(csc^2x+1)(cot^2x)/cot^2x i think I'm doing something wrong. Please help!

    Verify the identity. (csc(2x) - sin(2x))/cot(2x)=cos(2x) =csc(2x)/cot(2x) - sin(2x)/cot(2x) =csc(2x)/cot(2x) - cos(2x) Is this correct so far? If so then how would I continue? I got stuck on this part...
