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

I am supposed to show that this statement holds true

(csc x + cot x) / (tan x + sin x) = cot x * csc x

using sohcahtoa

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I have tried this

(( h/o ) + (a/o ) / ( o/a + o/h)) 1st

(( ah / o sqrd )) + ((ah / o sqrd )) 2nd

(ah + ah) / (o sqrd) 3rd

after this I cannot see where to go, to show that it

equals cot x * csc x
