1. did you mean
cot^2 ß/(1+cscß) = (1-sinß)/sinß ?

from the identity
sin^ Ø + cos^2 Ø = 1
if we divide each term by sin^2Ø ......
1 + cot^2 Ø = csc^2 Ø ----> cot^2 Ø = csc^2Ø - 1

LS
= (csc^2 ß - 1)/(1 + csc ß)
= (cscß + 1)(cscß - 1)/(1 + cscß)
= cscß - 1
= 1/sinß - sinß/sinß
= (1 - sinß)/sinß
= RS

How would you establish this identity: (1+sec(beta))/(sec(beta))=(sin^2(beta))/(1-cos(beta)) on the right, sin^2 = 1-cos^2, that factor to 1-cos * `1+cos, then the denominator makes the entire right side 1+cosB which is 1+1/sec
