**Help please on trig identity**

## Homework Statement

Simplify cot

^{2}xsecx + 1/cosx

## The Attempt at a Solution

Well so far i got:

cot

^{2}xsecx + 1/cosx

=(cos

^{2}x/sin

^{2}x)(1/cosx) + 1/cosx

=((1+cos2x)/(1-cos2x))(1/cosx) + 1/cosx

and from there I am stuck, I've tried playing around with it but I just seem to get to dead ends.

any help is appreciated, Thanks
