-Simplify each expression using the fundamental identities
2) Sec theta x cos theta
3) 1/csc^2x + 1/sec^2x
4) 1-sin^2u/cosu
5) cos^2x+ (sin x +1)^2/sin x + 1
Pleeease help, I don't know what to do
thanks!
Please use parenthesis! I presume that 4 is to read and not as .
My first rule of thumb is to get everything in terms of sine and cosine. This will immediately solve 2 and 3.
Also look for and
and .
Expand any expressions under exponents. ie. .
Finally simplify and see if you can factor anything after you have done the above steps.

Hello, zerostumbleine33!
It looks like you don't know any of the basic identities . . . *sigh*
Simplify each expression using the fundamental identities
We have: .
You're expected to know that: . .and .
Final answer: .
You're supposed to know that: .
. . and you should recognize: .
So we have: .
