Hey ive got an assignment on trig identities and cant figure this one out.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Prove the Identity:

tanx+cotx=2csc2x

I got to

tanx+cotx= 1/2 sin2x=1/4sinx2cosx

but when i get to the point where i have numbers in front of the sinx or cosx i dont know what to do.

Thanks for any help
