x=tan(t)+sec(t) and y=tan(t)-sec(t)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have to take the derivative, but it specifically states that I must eliminate the Parametric to do so (I think as a way to check we can do this...oops)

I was thinking that I could turn the x into:

x=sint+1/cost and then I could go from there, the only problem is that I have no idea where to go.

If anyone has any ideas that would help me get this into a trig identity so I can solve for t, I would love it!
