    LHS: sin x + sin x cot^2 x = sin x + sin x • cos^2 x/sin^2 x = sin x + cos^2 x/sin x = (sin^2 x + cos^2 x)/sin x = 1/sin x = csc x

    what you have as your answer is not what the problem is looking for.

    the problem is asking you to show your work on PROVING that: sinx + (sinx)(cot^2x) = cscx

    to do this, just look at the list of trigonometric identities which you can find on the web OR your MATH TEXT BOOK.
