    cot x sec^4 x=cot x + 2 tan x + tan^3 x cot x sec^4 x=1/tan x + 2 tan x + tan^3 x cot x sec^4 x=1/tan x + 2 tan^2 x/tan x + tan^3 x cot x sec^4 x=(1 + 2 tan^2 x)/tan x + tan^3 x cot x sec^4 x=(1 + 2 tan^2 x)/tan x + tan^3 x/1 cot x sec^4 x=(1 + 2 tan^2 x)/tan x + tan^4 x/tan x cot x sec^4 x=(1 + 2 tan^2 x + tan^4 x)/tan x cot x sec^4 x=(1 + 2z + z^2)/tan x ... Let z = tan^2 x cot x sec^4 x=((z+1)^2)/tan x cot x sec^4 x=((tan^2 x+1)^2)/tan x cot x sec^4 x=((sec^2)^2)/tan x cot x sec^4 x=(sec^4 x)/tan x cot x sec^4 x=cot x sec^4 x

    notice how I'm only manipulating the right side and I'm changing it into the left side

    1/tan x + 2 tan^2 x/tan x + tan^3 x (1 + 2 tan^2 x)/tan x + tan^3 x What allowed you to do that?

    1/tan x and 2 tan^2 x/tan x are fractions with the same denominator (tan x)

    I combined them to get (1 + 2 tan^2 x)/tan x
