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

I need to prove that

[itex]\frac{\frac{1}{2} cot20^{o}-cos10^{o}}{\frac{1}{2}+sin10^{o}}=\frac{\sqrt{3}}{3}[/itex]

3. The attempt at a solution

I try to do it by this way

[itex]\frac{\frac{1}{2} cot10^{o}-cos10^{o}}{\frac{1}{2}+sin10^{o}}=\frac{cos20^{o}-2cos10^{o}sin20^{o}}{(1+2sin10^{o})sin20^{o}}= \frac{ cos20^{o}-\frac{1}{2}-sin10^{o}}{(1+2sin10^{o})sin20^{o}}[/itex]

Please help, it is very urgent.
