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

Verify the Identity:

cos(x)-[cos(x)/1-tan(x)] = [(sin(x)cos(x)]/[sin(x)-cos(x)]

b]2. Relevant equations[/b]

reciprocal Identities, quotient Identities, Pythagorean Identities

3. The attempt at a solution

cos(x)-[cos(x)/1-tan(x)] = [(sin(x)cos(x)]/[sin(x)-cos(x)]

into

[cos(x)(1-tan(x))-cos(x)]/[1-tan(x)]

to

[-cos(x)tan(x)]/[1-tan(x)]

and this is where i get stuck cant turn it to [(sin(x)cos(x)]/[sin(x)-cos(x)]

i hope i wrote the problem right
