I am stuck on a problem and wondering if you can help?? It is: Prove the following: sec2(X)+csc2(X) = sec2(X)csc2(X)

Thank you!

Hi Debby,

I find it easier to think about trigonometry problems if they are in terms of sines and cosines.

sec(x) = 1/cos(x) and csc(x) = 1/sin(x), hence

Find a common denominator for the two fractions and simplify.

Does this help?
