Which of the following counterexamples proves that secxtan x=sinx is not a trigonometric identity? Select all that apply.
Neither pi nor 3pi would show this because both tan x and sin x are 0 at these values
but the other two show the difference
1/cos(3pi/4) tan(3pi/4) =1/-cospi/4 * -tam pi/4 = sqr2
But right side is sin3pi/4 =sinpi/4 =1/sqr2
1/cospi/3 * tanpi/3 = 2*sqr3/2 = sqr3
but sin pi/3 = sqr3/2
