    - (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

    yes. now u are left with -cos A/sinA -sinA/cos A cross multiply again, same as previous problem

    ya i see it, i under stand it but just forgot where the 2 came from. it came from the 2 fractions that crossed each other out right?

    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
