1. sin θ / √1-sin^2 θ

I dont know this, I know sin = 1 / csc but I not sure how to do this problem :( I dont know about the √1-sin^2 θ

Try using:

$$sin^{2}\theta+cos^{2}\theta=1$$

luigihs,
BloodyFrozen has given you a good hint. It is up to you to use the hint. It is against Physics Forums policy to do the work for posters.

But i dont even know how to use that formula how i am suppose to answer that problem ?? what is that ?? for me is just a formula .. but im guessing maybe is not a formula

That is the most important formula of entire trigonometry. If you don't know that formula, then I suggest you review your course. There is nothing else we can do for you.

How are you already simplifying (simple) expressions when you don't know the most basic one? As for my original hint, see if you can get $sin^{2}\theta+cos^{2}\theta=1$ to match a part of the expression that you are trying to simplify.
