prove that sin A + cosA = 1
secA + tanA - 1 cosecA + cotA -1
TES, you've quoted the correct version of the question, but you've taken into account the very first post lol.
We have to prove that :
Recall that
this will help you make the simplifications I'll skip
Hey ! But this is very similar to
Adding the two gives :
where and
But it can be very easily proved (or known) that
Hence
And finally, we have
But note that
Hence
Note : I've been doing all this while I'm not used at all to csc, cot, sec. What I used for simplifications is their definition in terms of cos, sin, tan. So the main difficulty for understanding is that I've been messy in my message and that I skipped some details lol
