    There are three Pythagorean trig identities that you simply must memorize.

    \[\left( \csc x+1 \right)\left( \csc x-1 \right)=\csc ^{2}x-1=\cot ^{2}x\]

    \[\sin^2x+\cos^2x=1,\frac{ \sin^2 x}{ \sin^2x }+\frac{ \cos^2x }{ \sin^2x }=\frac{ 1 }{ \sin^2x }, 1+\cot^2x=cosec^2x\]

    \[\csc ^{2}x-\cot ^{2}=1,or \csc ^{2}x-1=\cot ^{2}x\] It is an identity.

    pvs: it appears you are in over your head. If you have a question such as this, and can't pick up on the idea of a trig identity you might want to slow down and back up.

    $$ \tt \bf \Large(\csc x + 1)(\csc x -1)\\ \Large=\csc^2x-\csc x +\csc x -1\\ \Large=\csc^2x-1\\\\ \Large=\left(\dfrac{1}{\sin x}\right)^2-1\\ \Large=\dfrac{1}{\sin^2x}-1\\ \Large=\dfrac{1}{\sin^2x}-\dfrac{\sin^2x}{\sin^2x}\\\\ \Large=\dfrac{1-\sin^2x}{\cos^2x}\\\\ \Large=\dfrac{\cos^2x}{\sin^2x}\\\\ \Large=\cot^2x $$ Please let me kow if you have any questions. Good luck.
