(tan x + cot x)/sec x . csc x

The key to solve this question is to turn tan x, cot x, sec x, csc x into the simpler form.

Remember that tan x = sin x / cos x, cot x = 1/tan x, sec x = 1/cos x, csc x = 1/sin x

The solution is:

[(sin x / cos x)+(cos x / sin x)] / (1/cos x . 1/sin x)

[(sin x . sin x + cos x . cos x) / (sin x . cos x)] (1/sin x cos x)

[(sin x . sin x + cos x . cos x) / (sin x . cos x)] (sin x . cos x)


sin x. sin x + cos x . cos x



The answer is 1.

It's easiest to show all of the work (explanations/identities), and x represents theta. cosxcotx + sinx = cscx cosx times cosx/sinx + sinx = csc x (Quotient Identity) cosx2 /sinx + sinx = csc x (multiplied) 1-sinx2/sinx + sinx = csc x (Pythagorean Identity) 1/sinx - sinx2/sinx + sinx = csc x (seperate fraction) 1/sinx -sinx + sinx = csc x (canceled) 1/sinx = csc x (cancelled) csc x =csc x (Reciprocal Identity)

What is the answer of csc x plus cot x?

Without an "equals" sign somewhere, no question has been asked,so there's nothing there that needs an answer.Is it the sum that you're looking for ?csc(x) + cot(x) = 1/sin(x) + cos(x)/sin(x) = [1 + cos(x)] / sin(x)

How do you solve csc x sin x equals cos x cot x plus?

Suppose csc(x)*sin(x) = cos(x)*cot(x) + y then, ince csc(x) = 1/sin(x), and cot(x) = cos(x)/sin(x), 1 = cos(x)*cos(x)/sin(x) + y so y = 1 - cos2(x)/sin(x) = 1 - [1 - sin2(x)]/sin(x) = [sin2(x) + sin(x) - 1]/sin(x)

There are 6 basic trig functions.sin(x) = 1/csc(x)cos(x) = 1/sec(x)tan(x) = sin(x)/cos(x) or 1/cot(x)csc(x) = 1/sin(x)sec(x) = 1/cos(x)cot(x) = cos(x)/sin(x) or 1/tan(x)---- In your problem csc(x)*cot(x) we can simplify csc(x).csc(x) = 1/sin(x)Similarly, cot(x) = cos(x)/sin(x).csc(x)*cot(x) = (1/sin[x])*(cos[x]/sin[x])= cos(x)/sin2(x) = cos(x) * 1/sin2(x)Either of the above answers should work.In general, try converting your trig functions into sine and cosine to make things simpler.

What is co-tangent squared?

Start with the identity (sin a)2 + (cos a)2 = 1. Divide both sides by (sin a)2 to get1 + (cot a)2 = (csc a)2. Then subtract 1 from both sides. (cot a)2 = (csc a)2 - 1.

What is reciprocal in trigonometry?

The inverse of sine (sin) is cosecant (csc). The inverse of cosine (cos) is secant (sec). The inverse of tangent (tan) is cotangent (cot).

Are shifts sin cos tan equal to csc sec cot respectively?

No, they are the inverse functions, while csc, sec and cot are the reciprocal functions. To illustrate the difference, the inverse of f(x) = x+3 is f-1(x) = x-3 But the reciprocal of f(x) is 1/f(x) = 1/(x+3)
