    \frac{\tan x\sin x}{\tan x+\sin x}=\frac{\tan x\sin x}{\tan x+\sin x}\times\frac{\cos x}{\cos x}

    =\frac{\sin^2x}{\sin x + \sin x\cos x}

    =\frac{1-\cos^2x}{\sin x(1+\cos x)}

    =\frac{(1-\cos x)(1+\cos x)}{\sin x(1+\cos x)}

    =\frac{1-\cos x}{\sin x}

    =\frac{\tan x}{\tan x}\times\frac{(1-\cos x)}{\sin x}

    =\frac{\tan x-\sin x}{\tan x\sin x}
