# can you please prove these trigonometric identities?

a.) (csc^2) (X) + (sec^2) (X) = (csc^2) (X) (sec^2) (X)

b.) ( ( 1 + sin Y ) / ( cos Y ) ) = ( ( cos Y ) / ( 1-sin Y ) )

c.) cos 2X = (cos^4) (X) - (sin^4) (x)

d.) cot X sin 2X = 1 + cos 2X

I HOPE YOU ANSWER AS BEST AS YOU COULD, I NEED ANSWERS WITHIN 4-6 DAYS,,THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!

Update:

PLEASE ANSWER AS BEST AS YOU COULD,,, I REALLY NEED THEM VERY SOON..

THESE ARE MY ASSIGNMENTS AND THEY ARE VERY - IMPORTANT- TO ANSWER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE,,,MY CLASSMATES AND FRIENDS RELY ON MY ANSWERS,,,SO I NEED TO FIND ANSWERS FOR THEM BUT IT IS NOT THAT EASY FOR ME.....SO I NEED GREAT HELP....THANKS!!

Update 2:

MAY GOD BLESS THOSE WHO TRY TO HELP ME ....

I THANK YOU VERY MUCH...

IT IS SUCH A BLESSING LIKE A PERSON WHO TRIES TO HELP SOMEONE IN NEED....

a)

csc²x+sec²x= 1/sin²x + 1/cos²x= (sin²x + cos²x)/sin²xcos²x =1/ sin²xcos²x =csc²xsec²x

b)

( 1 + sin Y ) / ( cos Y )= [( 1 + sin Y ) x ( 1 - sin Y ) ] ÷ ( cos Y ) x ( 1 - sin Y )

=cos²Y ÷ [( cos Y ) x ( 1 - sin Y )]

=( ( cos Y ) / ( 1-sin Y ) )

c)

cos 2X= (cos²x −sin²x ) x 1

= (cos²x −sin²x ) x (sin²x + cos²x)

=(cos^4) (X) - (sin^4) (x)

d) LHS:

cot X sin 2X=(cosx÷sinx) x (2sinxcosx)

=2cos²x

RHS:

1 + cos 2X=1+cos²x −sin²x

=2cos²x (since cos²x= 1−sin²x )

LHS=RHS

b) Multiply both sides by (1 - sin Y):

(1 - sin^2 Y) / (cos Y) = cos Y

cos^2 Y / cos Y = cos Y. Q.E.D.

c) Observe that the right hand side = (cos^2 x + sin^2 x) (cos^2 x - sin^2 x) = cos^2 x - sin^2 x = cos (2x)
