Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[(1+\tan(x))(1\tan(x))\] \[1\tan^2(x)\] \[1\frac{\sin^2(x)}{\cos^2(x)}\] He is right until this point.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes but that totally is not the same as (1sin^2(x))(sec^2(x))

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.11 is not being multiplied by sec^2(x) so you can not write (1sin^2(x))(sec^2(x))
