The first one is:

This is wrong. you should take reciprocal of the RHS to fix this one

And the second one is:

(sinx/1-cotx) - (cosx/tanx-1) = sinx+cosx

please bracket it properly so that i can give you a definitive answer.

I get to a certain point on both of these and can't figure out where to go from there, any help in how to verify these would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Thanks!
