# Prove the Following Trigonometric Identities. Cos a Cosec a - Sin a Sec A)/(Cos a + Sin A) = Cosec a - Sec a - CBSE Class 10 - Mathematics

#### Question

Prove the following trigonometric identities.

(cos A cosec A - sin A sec A)/(cos A + sin A) = cosec A - sec A

#### Solution

We have to prove (cos A cosec A - sin A sec A)/(cos A + sin A) = cosec A - sec A

So,

(cos A cosec A - sin A sec A)/(cos A + sin A) = (cos A 1/sin A - sin A 1/cos A)/(cos A + sin A)

= ((cos^2 A - sin^2 A)/(sin A cos A))/(cos A + sin A)

= (cos^2 A - sin^2 A)/(sin A cos A(cos A + sin A))

= ((cos A - sin A)(cos A + sin A))/(sin A cos A(cos A + sin A))

= (cos A - sin A)/(sin A cos A)

= cos A/(sin A cos A) - sin A/(sin A  cos A)

= 1/sin A - 1/cos A

= cosec A - sec A

Hence proved.
