    You can't cancel out like that.

    Remember that  \csc(x) = \frac{1}{\sin(x)}

    Therefore, try this:

     \frac{\sin(x) + \cos^2(x)}{\sin(x)} = \csc(x)

     \sin(x) + \cos^2(x) = \frac{1}{\sin(x)} \times \sin(x)

     \sin(x) + \cos^2(x) = 1

    Now, remember that  sin^2(x) + cos^2(x) = 1 . You can use this to write  \cos^2(x) in terms of  \sin(x) which will give you a quadratic in  \sin(x) to solve.

    You have been told what to do. You're expected to show some effort now. If still you're still stuck, please say exactly where you're stuck.

    (By the way ... it's an equation NOT and identity. You have to solve for x).
