    Simplifying Trig expression

    Hi guys,

    It's been a while since I've taken a math class in a while so please forgive my lack of knowledge for now. I can't figure out how to solve it from websites so I thought I'd get some help from the pros .

    Can you please show me how to simplify:


    sin2X(1 + tan2X)...the x's are exponents

    Thanks!

    sin^2{x}(1+tan^2{x}) = \sin^2{x} \cdot \sec^2{x} = \tan^2{x}
