comment Solving for $x$ in a log equation
Oh... I was only looking for x-axis intersections from two equations for some reason. Weirdly enough, Wolfram Alpha doesn't give me the other solutions. Thanks!

comment Proving identities using Pythagorean, Reciprocal and Quotient
Ultimately used this method. Thanks for the guidance! Replacing the 1 with the cos and sin was something I never had todo before, so this knowledge definitely opens up some additional avenues in solving these. Thanks!

Could you explain how the denominator of step 2 transforms to the squared cos subtracted by sin?

Oh I see, you are doing it a bit differently from Arturo which has mixed me up a bit. Thanks for this as well!

Oh! Convert $\csc$ and $\sec$ to the reciprocals, get $\frac{\sin^2 \theta}{\cos \theta \sin \theta}$, simplify and get $\tan\$! Thanks!

Oops, you are right. I understand this step as rationalizing the denominator, but I don't know how to proceed at all.

The LHS? I'm seriously at a lost here; another hint would be great.

$\frac{\tan \theta}{\sin^2 \theta}$? Is that correct?

It is equal to $1-\cos\theta$ or $\sin^2\theta$... still deciding what to do with it though.

comment Which of the numbers $99^{100}$ and $100^{99}$ is the larger one?
@Myself - Yep, wolframalpha.com/input/?i=999999%5E1000000+%3E+1000000%5E999999. Might have to give it a few seconds ;)

comment Do online lecture recordings hurt or help math students at university?
I love the point about seeing different lectures from different professors - different viewpoints can help you cement your knowledge and fill in any gaps you didn't know you even had!
