# 5. Prove the following identities, where the angles involved are acute angles for which the expressions are defined.          $(x) (\frac{1+\tan ^{2}A}{1+\cot ^{2}A})= (\frac{1-\tan A}{1-\cot A})^{2}= \tan ^{2}A$

We need to prove,
$(\frac{1+\tan ^{2}A}{1+\cot ^{2}A})= (\frac{1-\tan A}{1-\cot A})^{2}= \tan ^{2}A$

Taking LHS;

$\\\Rightarrow \frac{1+\tan ^{2}A}{1+\cot ^{2}A} = \frac{\sec^2A}{\csc^2A}=\tan^2A$

Taking RHS;

$\\=(\frac{1-\tan A}{1-\cot A})^2\\\\= (\frac{1-\sin A/\cos A }{1-\cos A /\sin A})^2\\\\ = \frac{(\cos A -\sin A)^2(\sin^2A)}{(\sin A-\cos A)^2(\cos^2A)}\\\\ =\tan^2A$

LHS = RHS

Hence proved.
