\(cos^{2}A=\frac{sin^{2}A}{cosA},\Rightarrow cot^{2}A=\frac{1}{cosA}.\)As in question \(cot^{6}A-cot^{2}A = \frac{1-cos^{2}A}{cos^{3}A} = \frac{sin^{2}A}{cos^{3}A} = 1.\) Kishan K · 4 years, 1 month ago

cos^2x=sin^2x!!!! Hence, cot^6x=cosec^2x!!! Therefore, by identity cosec^2x-cot^2x=1!!!! Subhrodipto Basu Choudhury · 4 years, 1 month ago
