Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so first you change the equation in terms of Sinx and cosx so because tanx= sinx/cosx and cotx= cosx/sinx you're left with (sinx/cosx)+(cosx/sinx) now add them as you would any other fraction. ( Make sure to make them have common denominators before adding)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh. For 1/tanx+cotx, it would be 2cotx because cotx+cotx=2cotx
