Prove the following: [1+sinx]/[1+cscx]=tanx/secx =[1+sinx]/[1+1/sinx] =[1+sinx]/[(sinx+1)/sinx] =[1+sinx]*[sinx/(sinx+1)] =[sinx+sin^2x]/[sinx+1] =[sinx+(1cos^2x)]/[sinx+1] =??? This is where I'm stuck. Can someone help me.

Mathematics  Trigonometric Identities  Reiny, Friday, November 9, 2007 at 10:30pm (sinx  1 cos^2x) (sinx + 1  cos^2x) should have been (sinx  1 + cos^2x) (sinx + 1  cos^2x) and then the next line should be sin^2x + sinx  
Math (trigonometric identities)
I was given 21 questions for homework and I can't get the last few no matter how hard and how many times I try. 17. Sinx1/sinx+1 = cos^2x/(sinx+1)^2 18. Sin^4x + 2sin^2xcos^2x + cos^4x = 1 19. 4/cos^2x  5 = 4tan^2x  1 20. Cosx

( tanx/1cotx )+ (cotx/1tanx)= (1+secxcscx) Good one! Generally these are done by changing everything to sines and cosines, unless you see some obvious identities. Also generally, it is best to start with the more complicated

prove the identity (sinX)^6 +(cosX)^6= 1  3(sinX)^2 (cosX)^2 sinX^6= sinx^2 ^3 = (1cosX^2)^3 = (12CosX^2 + cos^4) (1cosX^2) then multiply that out 12CosX^2 + cos^4  cosX^2 + 2cos^4 cos^6 add that on the left to the cos^6,

I need to prove that the following is true. Thanks (cosx / 1sinx ) = ( 1+sinx / cosx ) I recall this question causing all kinds of problems when I was still teaching. it requires a little "trick" L.S. =cosx/(1sinx) multiply top
