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. close, but
(1/sinx) times (cosx/1)
= cosx/sinx
= cot x

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
