Prove idenity: 1 + sin theta / cos theta = cos theta / 1 - sin theta

I cant figure out which idenity!?

Show steps if at all possible thanks in advance.

Still a bit confused, The more i think about it, Maybe I just dont understand the goal of proving an idenity, I thought it was to get the problem into the form of one of the basic idenitys such as tan = sin/cos.
