Question #2491

What steps would you take to verify this? Thank you!!! :)

(1-cos^2(x)) / ((1-sinx) (1+sinx)) = tan^2(x)

(1-cos^2(x)) / ((1-sinx) (1+sinx)) = tan^2(x)

Expert's answer

Due to the identity

cos

the numerator is equal to sin

In the denominator we open brackets by standard formula:

(1-sinx) (1+sinx)=1-sin

which gives cos

Hence we get

sin

cos

^{2}x+sin^{2}x=1the numerator is equal to sin

^{2}xIn the denominator we open brackets by standard formula:

(1-sinx) (1+sinx)=1-sin

^{2}(x)which gives cos

^{2}(x)Hence we get

sin

^{2}x/ cos^{2}x = tan^{2}xNeed a fast expert's response?
