Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0here, a possible way, is to replace tanA with sinA/cosA, and cosecA with 1/sinA, in so doing the left side becomes: \[\Large \begin{gathered} \frac{{{{\left( {1 + \tan A} \right)}^2}\cot A}}{{{{\left( {\csc A} \right)}^2}}} = \hfill \\ \hfill \\ = \frac{{{{\left( {1 + \frac{{\sin A}}{{\cos A}}} \right)}^2}\frac{{\cos A}}{{\sin A}}}}{{{{\left( {\frac{1}{{\sin A}}} \right)}^2}}} = ... \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The question is \[(1 + \tan^2(A).\cot(A) \over cosec^2(A) \] is equal to tan(A)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes! it is an identity, so we have to show that the left side is equal to the right side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so sec^2(A).cot(A) over cosec^2(A)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0sorry I have made an error, here are your right steps: \[\Large \begin{gathered} \frac{{\left( {1 + {{\left( {\tan A} \right)}^2}} \right)\cot A}}{{{{\left( {\csc A} \right)}^2}}} = \hfill \\ \hfill \\ = \frac{{\left( {1 + {{\left( {\frac{{\sin A}}{{\cos A}}} \right)}^2}} \right)\frac{{\cos A}}{{\sin A}}}}{{{{\left( {\frac{1}{{\sin A}}} \right)}^2}}} = ... \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hint: here are more steps: \[\Large \begin{gathered} \frac{{\left( {1 + {{\left( {\tan A} \right)}^2}} \right)\cot A}}{{{{\left( {\csc A} \right)}^2}}} = \hfill \\ \hfill \\ = \frac{{\left( {1 + {{\left( {\frac{{\sin A}}{{\cos A}}} \right)}^2}} \right)\frac{{\cos A}}{{\sin A}}}}{{{{\left( {\frac{1}{{\sin A}}} \right)}^2}}} = \hfill \\ \hfill \\ = \frac{{{{\left( {\sin A} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {\cos A} \right)}^2}}}{{{{\left( {\cos A} \right)}^2}}} \cdot \frac{{\cos A}}{{\sin A}} \cdot {\left( {\sin A} \right)^2} = ... \hfill \\ \end{gathered} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1didn't get the last step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0we have the last step because we can write this: \[\Large \left( {1 + {{\left( {\frac{{\sin A}}{{\cos A}}} \right)}^2}} \right) = \frac{{{{\left( {\sin A} \right)}^2} + {{\left( {\cos A} \right)}^2}}}{{{{\left( {\cos A} \right)}^2}}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0furthermore, we can write this: \[\Large \frac{1}{{{{\left( {\frac{1}{{\sin A}}} \right)}^2}}} = \frac{1}{{\frac{1}{{{{\left( {\sin A} \right)}^2}}}}} = {\left( {\sin A} \right)^2}\]
