Make a common denominator on the LHS of the equation.
What do you get?
Can you walk me through this?
Here is what I got (didn't place any x's for visual purposes):
(tan+sec)/(tan^2-sec^2) + (tan-sec)/(tan^2-sec^2)
simplified that further to:
(tan+sec+tan-sec)/(tan^2-sec^2)
simplified even more to get:
(2tan)/(tan^2-sec^2)
Now I'm stuck. can you heLp?
thanks
