__Tanx__+

__Tanx__

csc(squared)x + sec(squared)x

The lines are fractions. tanx/scs(squared)x for example. I need help with this thanks

It is not at all clear what you mean. Since you have "+" both above and below the fractionline I would have interpreted that as

Tanx+Tanx

csc(squared)x + sec(squared)x

The lines are fractions. tanx/scs(squared)x for example. I need help with this thanks

[tex]\frac{tan x+ tan x}{csc^2 x+ sec^2 x}[/tex]

but then the numerator is obviously 2tan x.

Apparently you mean

[tex]\frac{tan x}{csc^2 x}+ \frac{tan x}{sec^2 x}[/tex]

As ZioX said, rewrite everything in terms of sin x and cos x and simplify.

(It might be easier to factor tan x out of that and concentrate on what's left!)
