All over the denominator like this:

Then put the first three into a 'perfect square'.

Sorry for my late reply.

I will do these as soon as possible

I may have gone 'round the houses' to do the second, but it works.  In other words, some steps may be eliminated I think.

exercise for you: do a similar thing with b^3

evaluate a/b and b/a and substitute all into (1)

everything cancels leaving just a 1

stereogram answer on the other thread

Thanks but I know these Identities. Yet, I am not being able to solve that at all. Please help me out.

I had almost forgotten about the stereograms. What did you figure out about it?

hi Agnishom,

Starting with

That looks like a good way to start with those denominators.  Then put everything in terms of sin and cos in order to simplify.

The second identity looks somewhat tougher.  I'll come back if I make progress.


ps.  I've made some progress with stereograms.

Prove these:


2. If cosec  θ - sin  θ = a3 and sec  θ - cos  θ = b3, Then prove that: ab(a + b) = 1
