    - (sin A-cos A) = -sin A -(-cos A) = -sin A +cos A = cos A -sin A

    i think i can, but it would be in 4 sections right? like sin A / Sin A - cos A/sinA + cos A/cos A -sinA/cos A

    it came from sinx/sin x + cosx / cos x = 1+1 = 2

    the 1/ sin a = the inverse of cos. that is csc and 1/ cos a = is the inverse of sine sec
