Please help with the following
1/ tanx + cotx = sinxcosx

Thank you,

Secondary level, student



Hi Patty,

The way this problem is written it is false. For example if x is 45 degrees then the left side is

 1/1 + 1 = 2

and the right side is

 1/sqrt(2) 1/sqrt(2)1/2

I think the problem should be

 1/(tanx + cotx) = sinx cosx

Can you do it now?
