Solution

\[\frac{\left( 1 + \cot x + \tan x \right) \left( \sin x - \cos x \right)}{\sec^3 x - {cosec}^3 x} = \sin^2 x \cos^2 x\]
\[\text{LHS} = \frac{\left( 1 + \cot x + \tan x \right)\left( \sin x - \cos x \right)}{\sec^3 x - {cosec}^3 x}\]
\[ = \frac{\left( 1 + \frac{\cos x}{\sin x} + \frac{\sin x}{\cos x} \right)\left( \sin x - \cos x \right)}{\frac{1}{\cos^3 x} - \frac{1}{\sin^3 x}}\]
\[ = \frac{\left( \sin x \cos x + \cos^2 x + \sin^2 x \right)\left( \sin x - \cos x \right)\left( \sin^2 x \cos^2 x \right)}{\left( \sin^3 x - \cos^3 x \right)}\]
\[ = \frac{\left( 1 + \sin x \cos x \right)\left( \sin x - \cos x \right)\left( \sin^2 x \cos^2 x \right)}{\left( \sin x - \cos x \right)\left( \sin^2 x + \cos^2 x + \sin x \cos x \right)}\]
\[ = \sin^2 x \cos^2 x \]
 = RHS
Hence proved.
