Best answer
Left hand side
=`(tantheta)/(1-cottheta)+(cottheta)/(1-tantheta)`
=`(tantheta)/(1-cottheta)+(cottheta)/(1-tantheta)`
=`(-tantheta)/(1-tantheta)+(cottheta)/(1-tantheta)`
=`(-tan^2theta+tantheta)/(1-tantheta)`
=`1/tantheta((1-tan^3theta)/(1-tantheta))`
=`1/tantheta(1+tan^2theta+tantheta)`
=`1+seccthetacosectheta`
