im thinking sex x or -sec x

Hey Brandi! :) Recall that since tangent is an odd function it satisfies this property: $$\large\rm \tan(-x)=-\tan(x)$$ So our problem is: $$\large\rm -\tan(x)\csc(x)$$ Convert your tangent and cosecant to sines and cosines. Is that what you did and came up with secant?
