  1. cotx = cos x/sin x
    tan x = sin x/ cos x

    cot x + tan x = cos x/sin x + sin x/ cos x
    cot x + sin x = cos^2 x/sin x cos x + sin^2 x/sin x cos x

    cot x + tan x = (cos^2 x+sin^2x)/sin x cos x

    but cos^2 x + sin^2 x = 1
    you take it from there.

    For each of the following determine whether or not it is an identity and prove your result. a. cos(x)sec(x)-sin^2(x)=cos^2(x) b. tan(x+(pi/4))= (tan(x)+1)/(1-tan(x)) c. (cos(x+y))/(cos(x-y))= (1-tan(x)tan(y))/(1+tan(x)tan(y)) d.
