    im a little confused on how you get to sin^2(x) + cos^2(x)/sinx I dont understand how sin^2(x) is made in the process

    since sinx is in denominator and when taking lcm, multiplied by sinx in the numerator u get it

    so then wouldnt that step be sin^2(x) +cos^2(x) and not sin^2(x) +cos^2(x)/sinx because you elimanted the divide by sinx?
