Could someone PLEASE help me with these!

1. Verify the identity: (sinx-2+1/sinx)/(sinx-1/sinx)=sinx-1/sinx+1

2.Verify the identity: (1/1-cosx)-(cosx/1+cosx)=2csc(squared)x-1

3.Verify the identity: 2cos4xsin2x=2sin3xcos3x-2cosxsinx

here is what you have ..multiply top and bottom by to get which simplifies to ..and by cancelling the common factor of you get what you want

Working on the LHS

Multiply top and bottom by sinx and then factorise. - Apr 6th 2008, 01:51 PMMathstud28For the secodn one
which then by combining the fraction gives you ...the top simplifies to by manipulating the pythagorean identity..now seperating that gives what you wnat
