Homework Statement
Prove:
cosA/(1-tanA) + sinA/(1-cotA) = sinA + cosA
I have tryed turning tan and cot into sin and cos and everything but I can not prove it... can some one help??
Thank you.
That's good! Now (cos^2-sin^2)=(cos-sin)*(cos+sin), right? Just multiply it out.cos/(1-sin/cos)+ sin/(1-cos/sin)
cos^2/(cos-sin) + sin^2/(sin-cos)
(cos^2 - Sin^2)/(cos-sin)
I'm very impressed! It hass been a long time since the precalculus forum has seen any consistently correct algebraic manipulations from a student in just 1 post!cos/(1-sin/cos)+ sin/(1-cos/sin)
cos^2/(cos-sin) + sin^2/(sin-cos)
(cos^2 - Sin^2)/(cos-sin)
