Hello,

This question may seem easy to many. However, simplifying equations using trigonometric identities has always been a weakness of mine.

The expression to simplify is:

sin^{2}(x) / cot(x)

I have tried a number of methods and used a number of different identities, to no avail. Often it seems like the expressions I am creating during simplification are more complex than the original expression itself.

Any help that can be provided is greatly appreciated. If someone can post the individual steps they took to solve this question, that would be even better.

Thanks!

Eric.
