I have a question asking what is equal to -sec^2x. I believe that the answer is -tan^2x-1. However, I am not completely positive

    I came to this conclusion by making 1+ tan^2 =sec^2 all negative to get -1 - tan^2x = -sec^2 which is also equal to -tan^2x -1 = -sec^2x. Is this correct or have i done something wrong? Please helpp

    \[sec^2=\frac1{cos^2}\] would also seem fine
