LS = (1sinx)/cosx = 1/cosx  sinx/cosx RS = \(\large\frac{cosx}{1+sinx}\) = \(\large\frac{cosx(1sinx)}{(1+sinx)(1sinx)}\) = \( \large\frac{cosx}{1sin^2x}  \frac{cosxsinx}{1sin^2x}\) =.... Note: \[1 = cos^2x + sin^2x \]

I'm very bad at basic math , so I'm finding all of this to be very foreign.

Actually, simply working from the left is ok :D \[RS = \frac{cosx}{(1+sinx)}\]\[=\frac{cos}{1+sinx}\times \frac{1sinx}{1sinx}\]By the identity a^2  b^2 = (a+b)(ab), we get\[=\frac{cos(1sinx)}{1sin^2x}\]Then, \(sin^2x+cos^2x =1\) to express \(1sin^2x\) in terms of \(cos^2x\). Finally, cancel the common factor, and you'll get the left side!

so 1sin^2 = cos^2x?
