for the first one, multiply the left side by $\frac{1 - \cos{O}}{1 - \cos{O}}$
note that $1 - \cos^2{O} = \sin^2{O}$

for the second one, just distribute the right side

$
1-\tan O=-\tan O\left(1- \frac 1{\tan O}\right)$

Consider RHS $-\tan O\left(1- \frac 1{\tan O}\right)$

$\implies \tan O\left(\frac 1{\tan O}-1\right)$

$\implies \tan O\left(\frac {1-\tan O}{\tan O}\right)$

$\implies 1-\tan O=LHS$
