    \[(1-\frac{sinx}{cosx}){(1+\frac{sinx}{cosx})}\]\[(1-\frac{\sin^2x}{\cos^2x})\]\[1-\sin^2x \times \frac{1}{\cos^2x}\]\[(1-\sin^2x)(\sec^2x).\]

    \[(1+\tan(x))(1-\tan(x))\] \[1-\tan^2(x)\] \[1-\frac{\sin^2(x)}{\cos^2(x)}\] He is right until this point.

    Hint 2: Rewrite the numerator in terms of sin by using the Pythagorean identity, \[\cos^2(x)=1-\sin^2(x)\]

    Yes but that totally is not the same as (1-sin^2(x))(sec^2(x))

    Recall the distributive property a(b+c)=ab+ac

    1 is not being multiplied by sec^2(x) so you can not write (1-sin^2(x))(sec^2(x))

    Try not to give the full solution next time either even though you didn't do it this time because did it incorrectly anyways.

    We don't want Scenario 1. We want people to actually learn.

    (cos^x−sin^2x)(sec^2x) cos^x=1-sin^2x plug and get ans.
