Question #1509

Verify the identity algebraically sinx+cosx(cotx)=cscx. I need to prove that the left half of the equation in fact equals the right, but I am unsure which trigonometric identity to use to simplify the equation. If it could be shown in step by step how this is done, it would help me greatly as I am unsure of which trig. functions to use.

Expert's answer

sinx + cosx (cot x) = sinx + cosx (cosx / sinx) = (sin

^{2}x + cos^{2}x)/sinx= 1/sinx = csc xNeed a fast expert's response?
