And sec alpha equals one over cos alpha. Now our fraction looks like this: one over

sin alpha ALL OVER one over cos alpha.

Now to simplify the sandwich, we multiply one over sin alpha by the reciprocal of one

over cos alpha to get cos alpha over sin alpha. And since we know that cos alpha over sin

alpha equals cotangent alpha...

...we can determine that the answer is B.

Now we are definitely going to chow down on this thing... as soon as we can get our tongue untied...
