Use the fundamental identities to simplify the expression.

csc Q / sec Q

so this would be 1/sinx / 1/cosx

and then 1/sinx times cosx/1 = sin x cosx

Is this correct so far? If it is I do not know what to do next.

  1. Whenever you post an equation involving fractions or square-roots, use parentheses to enclose the numerator, the denominator, or the square-root, whichever the case may be.

    This will help you avoid ambiguities which could lead to mistakes in your calculations.

    csc Q / sec Q
    =(csc Q) / (sec Q)
    =(1/sin Q) / (1/ cosQ)
    =(1/sin Q) * cos Q
    = (cos Q) / (sin Q)
    = ?

    Perform the multiplication and use the fundamental identities to simplify. (cotx + cscx)(cotx-cscx) I know that you have to foil first so cot^2x - csc^2x and then use the pythagorean identity 1+cot^2u = csc^2u but I do not know
