we can substitute this: \[\sec x = \frac{1}{{\cos x}}\]

  • Michele_Laino
so we can write: \[\sec x - \frac{{\cos x}}{{1 + \sin x}} = \frac{1}{{\cos x}} - \frac{{\cos x}}{{1 + \sin x}}\]

hint: the common denominator is: \[\cos x\left( {1 + \sin x} \right)\]

what is: \[\frac{{\cos x\left( {1 + \sin x} \right)}}{{\cos x}} = ...?\]

how is cos the denominator?
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
it is an intermediate step
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
the denominator of our new equivalent fraction is: \[{\cos x\left( {1 + \sin x} \right)}\]

then i get \[\frac{1+\sin X-\cos ^{2}X\ }{ cosX(1+sinX) }\]
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
correct!
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
now, we can use this identity: \[{\left( {\cos x} \right)^2} = \left( {1 - \sin x} \right)\left( {1 + \sin x} \right)\]
