rewrite them as normal trig functions, and then use an identity related to tanx

Rewrite the equation using the definitions of sec and cosec in terms of sin and cos. Then see if you can rearrange into a simpler trig equation.

Firstly:
Simplify each example... Cotx=\dfrac{1}{tanx}....Secx= \dfrac{1}{cosx}.... Cosecx=\dfrac{1}{sinx}
