    \[\space \space \space -\sec^2x \div (\cot^2x + 1)\] \[=-\frac{1}{\cos^2x} \div \left(\frac{\cos^2x}{\sin^2x} + 1\right)\] \[=-\frac{1}{\cos^2x} \div \left(\frac{\cos^2x}{\sin^2x} + \frac{\sin^2x}{\sin^2x}\right)\] \[=-\frac{1}{\cos^2x} \div \left(\frac{1}{\sin^2x} \right)\] \[=-\frac{1}{\cos^2x} \times \left(\frac{\sin^2x}{1} \right)\] \[=-\frac{\sin^2x}{\cos^2x}\] \[=-\tan^2x\]

    \[\cot x - \cos^3x \csc x \\=\frac{\cos x}{\sin x} - \frac{\cos^3x}{\sin x} \\=\frac{\cos x - \cos^3x}{\sin x} \\=\frac{\cos x(1 - \cos^2x)}{\sin x} \\=\frac{\cos x(\sin^2x)}{\sin x} \\=\cos x \sin x \]
