Vertify the identities, clearly show each step (vertify one side that they are equal to each other)

sec^2+csc^2=sec^2+csc^2

asked by Amy
  1. There is nothing to prove. You have exactly the same terms on both sides already.

    I'd call that a tautology, not an identity

    I am having trouble with this problem. sec^2(pi/2-x)-1= cot ^2x I got : By cofunction identity sec(90 degrees - x) = csc x secx csc-1 = cot^2x Then split sec x and csc-1 into two fractions and multiplied both numerator and

    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;

    if you can't help me with my first question hopw you can help me with this one. sec(-x)/csc(-x)=tan(x) thanx to anyone who can help From the definition of the sec and csc functions, and the tan function, sec(-x)/csc(-x) =

    Ok so I have a right triangle with the hypothenuse = to 5, one side =3 and the other =4 and X is the angle between the hypothenuse and the side that =3. I'm supposed to find the sin, cos, tan, cot, sec, csc of X. I can't seem to

    1) verify the identity sec^2 (pi/2 - x) -1 = cot^2 x I think that we can replace sec with csc for the cofunction formulas since there is pi/2. Since there is squared and a 1 I think we could use one of the pythagorean identites

    1)(1-cos^2x)(csc x) ? Is this equal to sec x? 2) Expand: log7 3 sqrt x / x^2y 3) Find and simplify: f(g) F(x) = x^2 + 2x g(x) = 2x x^2 + 2x(2x) = x^2 + 4x Is this correct?
