# Math Help - Real quick simple question...

1. ## Real quick simple question...

Im doing a math problem and I get this far.

$\frac{sin^2Psin^2P}{cos^2P}$

Can that be converted to

$tan^2Psin^2P$?

Thanks!

$\dfrac{\sin(P)}{\cos(P)} = \tan(p)$

$\frac{\sin^2(P) \sin^2(P)}{\cos^2(P)} = \dfrac{\sin^2(P)}{\cos^2(P)} \cdot \sin^2(P) = \tan^2(P) \sin^2(P)$
