    Is this equation or identity?

    Verify each trigonometric equation by substituting identities to match the right hand side of the equation to the left hand side of the equation.

    ok thnks :) pick the side that has more terms, and do SOMETHING and try getting to the other side

    ya so we start with that side, and work, and prove that it equals left side.

    \(\cot x + 2\tan x + \tan^3 x\) \(\frac{1}{\tan x} + 2\tan x + \tan^3 x\) \(\frac{1+ 2\tan^2 x + \tan^4 x}{\tan x}\) \(\frac{1+ \tan^2 x + \tan^2x + \tan^4 x}{\tan x}\) \(\frac{\sec^2 x + \tan^2x + \tan^4 x}{\tan x}\) \(\frac{\sec^2 x + \tan^2x(1 + \tan^2 x)}{\tan x}\) \(\frac{\sec^2 x + \tan^2x(\sec^2 x)}{\tan x}\) \(\frac{\sec^2 x(1 + \tan^2x)}{\tan x}\) \(\frac{\sec^2 x(\sec^2 x)}{\tan x}\) \(\frac{\sec^4 x}{\tan x}\) \(\cot x\sec^4 x\) = LEFT HAND SIDE

    good, next factor out `sec^2x` from both terms, you get : \[\large \frac{\sec^2 x(1 + \tan^2x)}{\tan x}\]
