  1. 1) sin(x) has a range of [-1,1]
    2) sec(x) = 1/cos(x), and cos(x) has a range of [-1,1]

    Prove the following: [1+sinx]/[1+cscx]=tanx/secx =[1+sinx]/[1+1/sinx] =[1+sinx]/[(sinx+1)/sinx] =[1+sinx]*[sinx/(sinx+1)] =[sinx+sin^2x]/[sinx+1] =[sinx+(1-cos^2x)]/[sinx+1] =??? This is where I'm stuck. Can someone help me.

    My previous question: Verify that (secx/sinx)*(cotx/cscx)=cscx is an identity. (secx/sinx)*(cotx/cscx) = (secx/cscx)(cotx/sinx) = (sinx/cosx)*cotx*(1/sinx) "The last steps should be obvious" Not to me. I can convert (sinx/cosx) to

    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

    1/tanx-secx+ 1/tanx+secx=-2tanx so this is what I did: =tanx+secx+tanx-secx =(sinx/cosx)+ (1/cosx)+(sinx/cosx)-(1/cosx) =sinx/cosx+ sinx /cosx= -2tanxI but I know this can't be correct because what I did doesn't end as a
