Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1whats our common denominator? sin cos x right? can you try to continue? cos x sin x  +  =  sin x cos x sin x cos x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1alternate solution multiply them with something that will make a common denominator we wanted to have a common denominator of sin x cos x therefore cos x cos x sin x sin x (cos x )^2 + (sin x)^2 1  .  +  . =  =  sin x cos x cos x sin x sin x cos x sin x cos x whats 1/sin x =? also 1/cos x ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Although i don't see how you get COS(X)^2 + SIN(X)^2 1  =  SIN(X) COS(X) SIN(X) COS(X)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1isnt it the identity (sin x)^2 + (cos x)^2 = 1 ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok = 1/ sin x cos x = csc x/ cos x = sec x / sin x = sec x csc x
