how do you prove these trigonometry question?

sinθ(cscθ-sinθ)=cos^2θ

sinθcosθ+sinθ/cosθ+cos^θ=tanθ

they look easy....but then i tried to solve them...-_-

i seriously do not understand it!please help!

Thank you!

Update:

sinθcosθ+sinθ/cosθ+cos^2θ=tanθ

    LHS

    =sinθ(1/sinθ-sinθ)

    =1-sin^2θ --- since sin^2θ+cos^2θ=1

    =cos^2θ

    =RHS

    LHS

    =sinθ(cosθ+1)/cosθ(1+cosθ)

    =sinθ/cosθ

    =tanθ

    =RHS

    Part 1 is quite simple realty:

    Sinx(cosecx - sinx) = 1 - sin^2x .... Cosecx = 1/sinx

    = cos^2x ..... Sin^2x + cos^2x = 1

    Is something missing in the next question?

    The proper question should be (sinx cosx+sinx)/(cosx+cos^2x)=tanx ... Factor the numerator and factor the denominator and you will be left with sinx/cosx which is tanx
