    Identities

    I've been trying to get this problem for a while, but I still keep getting the wrong answer:

    1/sect+1/sect+1=2cotcsct

    How would you do it correctly?

    Could you recheck the problem?

    Is it cot(t)csc(t) or (as it now says) cot(csc(t))?
    Is it twice 1/sec(t) at the LHS?

    cot(t)csc(t)
    That's correct. I copied it down wrong.

    In that case, it's not an identity. Or do you mean it's an equation which has to be solved for t?
