Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, so let me try this: did you mean: \[Sec^2(x)/(Sec^2x  1) = Csc^2(x)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are a few Sec and Csc identities, but I never remember them so im just gonna convert em to Sin and Cos: Sec(x) = 1/Cos(x) Csc(x) = 1/Sin(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[[1/Cos^2x] / [ (1/Cos^2x)1 ] = 1/Sin^2x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now let's simplify this part: \[(1/Cos^2x)  1\] = \[(1Cos^2x)/Cos^2x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.01 = Cos^2 / Cos^2... get it?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh . yea, sorry. i got it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now you have to divide 1/Cos^2x by (1Cos^2x)/Cos^2x which is the same as multiplying by its inverse

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[[1/Cos^2x] * [Cos^2x/(1Cos^2x)] = 1/Sin^2x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[1/(1Cos^2x) = 1/Sin^2x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait. can't you just say 1 / (sin^2x) =csc^2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and then be done? or is that skipping a step?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah, but i prefer keeping everything in sin and cosine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0bcuz its easy to simplify

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[Sin^2x = 1  Cos^2x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See that's proved. Sin^2x + Cos^2x = 1!!!!
