1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Verify the identity: csc(x) + sec(x) = cot(x) + tan(x) sin(x) + cos(x) 2. Relevant equations sin^2 + cos^2 = 1 tan^2 + 1 = sec^2 1 + cot^2 = csc^2 3. The attempt at a solution First i changed everything to sin and cos to try and make it more clear. Let me know if I should bypass this: 1/sin(x) + 1/cos(x) = cot(x) + tan(x) sin(x) + cos(x) I'm not really sure where to go from here...should i try to make a common denominator?
