Solved example of trigonometric identities

$\sec\left(x\right)^2+\csc\left(x\right)^2=\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2\cdot\cos\left(x\right)^2}$

The power of a quotient is equal to the quotient of the power of the numerator and denominator: $\displaystyle\left(\frac{a}{b}\right)^n=\frac{a^n}{b^n}$

$\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2}$
2

Applying the secant identity: $\displaystyle\sec\left(\theta\right)=\frac{1}{\cos\left(\theta\right)}$

$\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2}+\csc\left(x\right)^2=\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2\cos\left(x\right)^2}$

The power of a quotient is equal to the quotient of the power of the numerator and denominator: $\displaystyle\left(\frac{a}{b}\right)^n=\frac{a^n}{b^n}$

$\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2}$
3

Applying the cosecant identity: $\displaystyle\csc\left(\theta\right)=\frac{1}{\sin\left(\theta\right)}$

$\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2}+\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2}=\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2\cos\left(x\right)^2}$
4

Separating the fraction's denominator

$\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2}+\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2}=\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2}\cdot\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2}$

Any expression multiplied by $1$ is equal to itself

$\cos\left(x\right)^2$
5

Unifying fractions with different denominator

$\frac{\sin\left(x\right)^2+\cos\left(x\right)^2}{\cos\left(x\right)^2\sin\left(x\right)^2}=\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2}\cdot\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2}$
6

Applying the pythagorean identity: $\sin^2\left(\theta\right)+\cos^2\left(\theta\right)=1$

$\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2\sin\left(x\right)^2}=\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2}\cdot\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2}$
7

Separating the fraction's denominator

$\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2}\cdot\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2}=\frac{1}{\sin\left(x\right)^2}\cdot\frac{1}{\cos\left(x\right)^2}$
8

Both expressions are equal
