Trig Identity questions.

  1. Apr 9, 2004 #1
    Hey everyone.

    I am doing some trig homework questions over identities and like most people its driving me insane.

    I have this one that has (tan+1)^2 and secx+1/secx over 1 + 1/sec^2x.

    Now my issue on the first one is that I get it to (tan+1)(tan+1) and then take it into sin/cos+1 * sin/cos+1 using the quotient identity. and I get stuck.

    On the 2nd one those 1's by themselves drive me crazy and I am not sure what to do with them.

    Any help is appreciate been looking over these two problems for awhile and its giving me a headache.

    Both of the identities are equal to zero and I just am trying to simplify it down in terms of sin cos or tan.
