    Simplifying Trig Functions

    The origional problem was
    Csc^2x(1-Cos^2x)
    I used the Pythagorean Identityto simplify it to
    Csc^2x(Sin^2x)
    Is this all or is there more to simplifying this?

    Look up, or recall, how cosecant (Csc) is defined. That should get the simplification going.
