  1. tanx(cotx/cosx)=secx
    tanx(1/tanx)(1/cosx)=secx
    cross out tanx with (1/tanx) and your left with (1/cosx) which is secx.

    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

    Verify that each of the following is an identity. tan^2x-sin^2x=tan^2xsin^2x I can get it down to cos^2 on the right, but cannot get it to work out on the left. secx/cosx - tanx/cotx=1 On the left I got down to 1-tan^2, but that

    How do you verify: 1.) sinxcosx+sinx^3secx=tanx 2.) (secx+tanx)/(secx-tan)=(secx+tanx)^2 I tried starting from the left on both problems, but am stuck. like I said before, change everything into sines and cosines. for the first
