Hi i have question tanx - cotx / tanx + cotx + 1 = 2sinx so... sin/cos - cos/sin / sin/cos + cos/sin then mutlple fracs and get sin^2x - cos ^2x/ sinxcosx / sin^2x + cos^2x/ sinxcosx and then what do i do?

Is this your question? I'm going to assume that the left hand side is written correctly, but I'm going to ask you to recheck the right hand side. After this step: We get: Recall that Therefore:

After this step: We get: Recall that Therefore: Sorry it is 2sin^2x, but i still dont understand the steps i see how you got but after that how did you end up with 2sin^2? how do you divide that :S

Ok I see.... thanks... so basically sin^2 + cos^2/ sin^2 + cos^2 is the same as sin^2 + cost ^2 since it equal 1
But I think you might have made a typo and meant instead: In that case, yes, it equals since
Er yeah, ty
