# Trigonometric Identity $\frac{1}{1-\cos t} + \frac{1}{1+\cos t}$

I am just learning about trig identities, and after doing a few, I am stuck on this one: $$\frac{1}{1-\cos t} + \frac{1}{1+\cos t}.$$ The only way to start, that I can think of is this: $$\frac{1}{1-(1/\sec t)} + \frac{1}{1+(1/\sec t)}.$$ And from there it just gets messed up. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Hint: Use that $$\frac{1}{a}+\frac{1}{b}=\frac{a+b}{ab}$$ along with the identity $$\sin^2t+\cos^2t=1.$$
