Hi, I need to prove:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(tan y + Cot y) sin y cos y = 1

I've gotten this far and got stuck:

(tany + cos y) sin y cos y changed Cot to reciprical

--------sin y

(sin y tany + cosy) sin y cos y common demonator

--------siny

(sin y tany + cos y) cosy multipyied by sin y

then i could distribute

cos y sin y tan y + cos(sqared) y but how would that equal 1?

thanks for your time.
