    One question per ticket. Here is the first one, such as it has an answer at all.

    "Express cos(x) in terms of cot(x) and csc(x)."

    cot(x) = cos(x)/sin(x)

    csc(x) = 1/sin(x)

    I believe you are expected to answer cos(x) = cot(x)/csc(x), but that is not exactly so. The cosine function has the domain of all real numbers, but the cotangent and cosecant functions do not. Take cos(0) as an example.

    cos(0) = 1

    However, cot(0) and csc(0) are both undefined, and cos(0) cannot be expressed in terms of two undefined values.
