    hmm maybe rewrite tan B as \(\frac{\sin B}{\cos B}\)?

    \[\frac{sec\beta + csc\beta}{1+tan\beta} = \frac{\frac{sin\beta+cos\beta}{sin\beta cos\beta}}{\frac{sin\beta + cos\beta}{cos\beta}} = \frac{1}{sin\beta}=csc\beta\]

    \[\frac{\frac{1}{\cos B} + \frac{1}{\sin B}}{\frac{\cos B + \sin B}{\cos B}}\] \[\frac{\frac{\sin B + \cos B}{\sin B \cos B}}{\frac{\cos B + \sin B}{\cos B}}\] \[\frac{\frac{1}{\sin B \cos B}}{\frac{1}{\cos B}}\]

    \[\large \sec B + \csc B = \frac{1}{\cos B} + \frac{1}{\sin B}\] LCD \[\frac{\sin B + \cos B}{\sin B \cos B}\]

    \[\frac{1}{cos \beta} + \frac{1}{sin\beta} = \frac{1(sin\beta)}{cos \beta sin\beta} + \frac{1(cos \beta)}{sin\beta cos \beta} =\frac{sin\beta +cos\beta}{sin\beta cos\beta} \]

    \[1+tan\beta = 1+ \frac{sin\beta}{cos\beta} = \frac{cos\beta}{cos\beta} +\frac{sin\beta}{cos\beta} = \frac{sin\beta+cos \beta}{cos\beta} \]

    When you make it like that, it's easier to simplify~ Maths is weird in nature... I think :S
