    [SOLVED] Simplifying Expressions

    Each expression simplifies to a constant, single circular function, or a power of a circular function. Use fundamental identities to simplify each expression.

    (sin^2 x/cos^2 x) + sin x + csc x

    the answer is sec^2 x. how do i go from the problem to the answer?

    check this, it should be ...

    \frac{\sin^2{x}}{\cos^2{x}} + \sin{x} \cdot \csc{x}<br />
