Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i got it until (cos^2 over sinx)  (sinx) after your second step i multiplied deno and numerator by sinx. but how did you get cos^2sin^2x over sinx and how is it same as cos^2x over sinx?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Because cos(2x) = cos^2(x)sin^2(x)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea i meant shouln't you get cos^2sinx over sinx instead of cos^2x sin^2x over sinx

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You can work on either side when proving an identity or both sides. You just can't work across the equal sign like adding the same thing to both sides or something like that.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1uw. p.s. are you a tutor? like to help students? anywho when you see identity questions how do you know what to do and which side to solve first?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i got stuck again.. \[\left( cosx \over 1+sinx \right) = \left( 1sinx \over cosx \right)\] what should be the nxt step ?
