Could someone show me the first couple of steps of this Proof.

2/1+cosx - tan^2(x/2) = 2cosx/1+cosx.

Im working with the left side. I know to use Half-Angle I.D. I've tried all 3 tan Half angles. just keep getting hung up.

I understand that it is not an equation. I need to verify that one side equals the other.
