Hello everyone!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm entering my first year of university calculus, and I must say, I was never really good with math. So I have a few questions. This will seem pathetic to some of the math wizzards!

1.) Show that the identity 1+cot^2 ϑ = csc^2 ϑ

follows from

sin^2 ϑ + cos^2 ϑ = 1.

2.) Solve sec^2 x = √3 tan x + 1 on [0, π)

Thanks for your help!
