Alright, well I am having a difficult time getting these equations to equal out! I keep hitting trouble and have hit a road block.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here is the problem...

csc(x)+cot(x) = cot(x)csc(x)

tan(x)+sin(x)

I am just going to work on the LEFT PART of the equation.

1 + cos(x)

sin(x) sin(x)

ALL OVER

sin(x) + sin(x)

cos(x)

so....

1 + cos(x) / sin(x) * cos(x) /sin(x) + sin(x)cos(x)

simplifying the bold leads to...

1 + cos(x) / sin(x) * cos(x) / sin(x)(1+cos(x))

I am stuck here, particular getting the common denominator and then simplyfing it out to equal cot(x)csc(x)

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
