Working on trig identities and came across a problem: (1-sin t)^2/ cos^2 t = 1-sin t/ 1+ sin t This is as far as I got: cos ^2 t/ cos ^2 t=1-sin t/ 1+ sin t Help please :)

First of all the most important identity in trig is sin^2x + cos^2x = 1 if you solve this for cos^2x you would subtract sin^2x from both sides so ... cos ^2x = 1 - sin^2x After that you would substitute in the original equation. So where you see cos^2t on the bottom you would replace it with 1 - sin^2t Secondly.. You would write the top as (1 - sint)(1 - sint) and the bottom would factor because it is the difference of two square.. So the bottom would be (1 + sint)(1 - sint). The (1 - sint) would cancel from the top and bottom and would you be left with 1 - sint / 1 + sint

You are welcome... You will use sin^2x + cos^2x = 1 a bunch....
