# Trig Proof

Prove:

$$\frac{Sec^{2}\frac{y}{2}}{2} \eqiv \frac{2}{1+x^{2}}$$

Well i know from the pythagorean identities that tan^{2}x + 1 = sec^{2}x
so

$$\frac{tan^{2}\frac{y}{2} + 1}{2} \eqiv \frac{2}{1+x^{2}}$$

But now im stuck!

If your interested the full qusetion is page 35, question 7 (ii) here:
