    first we do the algebra \[\frac{\frac{a}{b}}{b-\frac{1}{b}}=\frac{a}{b^2-1}\]

    no replace a by cosine, b by sine and get \[\frac{\cos(x)}{\sin^2(x)-1}=-\frac{\cos(x)}{1-\sin^2(x)}=-\frac{\cos(x)}{\cos^2(x)}=-\sec(x)\]

    yes \[\frac{\frac{a}{b}}{b-\frac{1}{b}}=\frac{a}{b^2-1}\] multiply top and bottom by \[b\]and get it in one step
