\[\frac{ \frac{1}{sin {\theta}}}{tan{\theta}}+\frac{1}{tan{\theta}}=cos{\theta}\]
I am sorry, how did that happen?
Sorry I will write it up first and post it with steps. Just a moment

Sweet, thanks!
does it mean that (1/sin x)^2+(1/sin x)=1?
if you divide the cos theta from both sides
Yes correct
I still would appreciate to see the steps plz :s
but why? let x=pi/6 then 4+2=1??
yes I'm having that issue too. Are you sure it's written down right?
\[\csc \theta \over \tan \theta +\cot \theta\] = [\cos \theta\]
I see now, next time put the tan theta + cot theta in brackets to make it clearer.
multiply the LHS by sinx cosx
gotcha. sorry about that.
i mean csc x /(tan x + cot x)= cscx sinx cosx / (tanx sinx cosx+cotx sinx cosx)=cosx/(sin^2 x+cos^2 x)=cosx
im sorry it should be theta...
why did you multiply each sides by sinx cosx? how could u tell?
Here's a different way to go about it :)
because there are sinx cosx in the denominator
my teacher doesn't let me combite the left side and the right side.. in this case i would need to make the left side cos theta. :S
zed; yur way is something to think about, and it's cool. yet i won't b able to use your method
@Zed you shouldnt give out a prove like this, you should write LHS=...=....=...=RHS
yifian; i don't really get how you got there.. :(
i can't figure it out
which step?
is there other way to do it?
Thanks Yifan, I haven't done proof in a long time. \[LHS = \frac{1/sinx}{sinx/cosx+cosx/sinx}\] \[=\frac{1/sinx}{(sin^2x+cos^2x)/sinxcosx}\]\[=\frac{1/sinx}{1/sinxcosx}\]\[=\frac{1}{cosx}\]\[=RHS\]
sorry that second last line was supposed to be cosx
yeah that is a good prove except that you substitute theta for x..
yeah i got tired of writing theta out
thanks Yifan
1 over cos x isn't same as cos x
It was a typo
i got that too.
well thanks for your time :)
i still don't get it . for some reason, im very confused. i will ask my teacher and I will let you know if there is a simpler way to do it if you are interested :P g'nite.
