(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Simplify: cosx / (1+sinx)

2. The attempt at a solution

1 / (sec x)(1+sin x)

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

1 / (sec x + tan x)

I know that the answer is sec x - tan x but don't know how to get there.

Any help would be appreciated.
