Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\mathrm{Use\:the\:following\:identity}:\quad \:1=\cos ^2\left(x\right)+\sin ^2\left(x\right)\] \[=\frac{\sin ^2\left(θ\right)}{\cos ^2\left(θ\right)\cos ^2\left(θ\right)+\sin ^2\left(θ\right)}\] \[\frac{\sin ^2\left(θ\right)}{\cos ^2\left(θ\right)+\cos ^2\left(θ\right)+\sin ^2\left(θ\right)}\] \[\mathrm{Add\:similar\:elements:}\:\cos ^2\left(θ\right)+\cos ^2\left(θ\right)=0\] \[=\frac{\sin ^2\left(θ\right)}{\sin ^2\left(θ\right)+0}\] \[=\frac{\sin ^2\left(θ\right)}{\sin ^2\left(θ\right)}\] =1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\mathrm{Simplify}\:\frac{1\sin \left(θ\right)}{\cos \left(θ\right)}:\quad \left(1\sin \left(θ\right)\right)\sec \left(θ\right)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Simplify the trigonometric expression (is the question)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1perhaps the easiest it to rewrite \(\sin^2(\theta)\) as \(1\cos^2(\theta)\) then factor

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use the identity sin^2 = 1cos^2. Then factor it into (1+cos)(1cos). Then cancel

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{\sin^2(\theta)}{1\cos(\theta)}=\frac{1\cos^2(\theta)}{1\cos(\theta)}=\frac{(1+\cos(\theta))(1\cos(\theta))}{1\cos(\theta)}=1+\cos(\theta)\]
