    7B) Unsure on the last stage of this question as I'm left with:


    to get to Sec^2x=25

    cosec^2x = 1 + cot^2x

    so you have -2(1+cot^2x)/-cot^2x=50

    You can get rid of the negatives as they are on both the top and bottom


    The sin^2x cancel out to give you:
    2 x1/cos^2x=50
    therefore... 2sec^2x=50

    Hope that makes sense

    EDIT: You could also go from
    2cosec^2x/cot^2x to 2(1/sin^2x)/cos^2x/sin^2x
