    Try this. First, change all tan(x) and cot(x) into sin(x)/cos(x) and cos(x)/sin(x) respectively. Then combine the fractions using common denominator which is cos(x)sin(x). -Hba.

    I kept getting it to equal sin2. Let me give it another try.

    No if you try to reduce it,It will come to \[ \sin^2x -\cos^2x \]

    Agreed. I see you now. I have it on my paper. But now you have your +2cos^2 on there. I know sin+cos=1 (as long as they are both squared)...but what about the rest?

    Then put it in the actual ques. \[\sin^2x- \cos^2x + 2\cos^2x = 1\]

    I understand that, yes. But maybe I just can't see it because I can't carry it on.
